Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Cut the tofu into 1" cubes. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 25 - 35 minutes, until tofu has crisped up. Stir it around a few times so as not to burn it.
  • While tofu is baking, steam the broccoli florets. Place the florets in a steamer basket and steam until just tender. Remove from heat.
  • Whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, hot sauce, rice vinegar and scallions. Set aside.
  • When tofu is done baking, preheat a skillet or wok over medium high heat. Add broccoli, tofu and quinoa and cook for 2 - 3 minutes until warm. Add sauce, toss to coat and cook for another 1 - 2 minutes. Add sesame seeds (if using) and stir to incorporate.
  • Remove the stir-fry from the heat and transfer to bowls.
  • Enjoy immediately!

Notes

If you have the time, I recommend pressing the tofu. This will help it get more crispy when baked. To press the tofu, place a few paper towels on a large plate, place tofu block on top of towel and cover with a few more paper towels. Place something heavy (I use cookbooks or my tea kettle with water in it) on top of the tofu and let sit for 30 minutes. Then follow recipe as written.
