Easy Tofu

Today was one of those days when I was annoyed by everything and everyone. Still am actually. Woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Twice.

Literally though, I had a horrible night--insomnia at 4 a.m. followed by a wake-up call at 7-- and a very long day. I was anxious all day long; I was crabby; I was mean; geez, I hated myself today. Can it just be tomorrow already?

Anyways, I am not about to vent all night long, so here is a recipe I had saved from a couple of weeks ago. I featured a recipe similar to this one before, but this one is better. It is an easy lunch/dinner with a healthy twist. Tofu and vegetables, my favorite combo.

Broccoli Cauliflower Tofu
Active time: 10 minutes. Total time: 15 minutes.
Makes 2 servings.

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 6 oz. extra firm tofu, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 1 cup cauliflower florets
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Add tofu and lower heat to medium; cook until slightly browned and crispy, about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer tofu to a plate and set aside, keeping pan over heat.
  2. Add vegetables to pan and bring heat to medium-high. Add soy sauce and vinegar and cook until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. 
  3. Return tofu to sauce pan and stir, cooking for another minute. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
