Back with another Broccoli delight 🙂 We absolutely love this dish when we are looking for some light and healthy meal. Stir fry has always been the time tested way to cook with less fat.  This can be easily recreated at your home kitchen with ur favorite veggies in case ur facing picky eaters 😛 Mushrooms, carrots, shrimp and Bell peppers make excellent additions to this…I mean, who doesn’t love a meal as colorful as this would turn out 🙂

You Will Need

tofu

Firstly, fry thinly sliced onions in 1 Tbsp of Olive Oil along with minced garlic for 2 mins in a large pan. I added some jeera too 🙂

The extra firm Tofu works best for this.

**Look for the ” EXTRA FIRM TOFU ” on the package**

I used the all natural Extra Firm Tofu available at all major supermarkets

My experiment with the regular Tofu  was all scrambled  by the end of it 😀 haha… *lesson learnt*

*Make sure you press the water out of the tofu block before you start cooking. Keep the block between paper towels and place a bowl on top of it. This will drain out the water from it.*

Prep the Tofu by cutting into evenly shaped cubes.

Once the Onions are slightly fried, throw in the Tofu cubes. Cook Tofu until brown on all sides. I used up some left over BellPeppers here .. Let it cook for 10-15 mins before adding in the Broccoli florets. Fry well until the florets are cooked. Add 2 Tbsp of water to help the florets cook well.

At this stage, add a dash of Soy sauce and stir until the Broccoli is coated well…Sprinkle some Chilli flakes, Salt and Pepper. Feel free to go creative with the seasoning here. Mix well and cook for a few minutes.
