Broccoli and Tofu Stir Fry with Toasted Almonds

Broccoli and Tofu Stir Fry with Toasted Almonds

1 pkg (16 oz) firm tofu

4 C. broccoli florets

3 tsp. toasted sesame oil

1 bunch scallions (about 8), trimmed and thinly sliced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 sm jalapeno chile pepper, halved, seeded, and finely chopped (wear plastic gloves when handling)

3 1/2 tsp. soy sauce

2 Tsp. sliced almonds, lightly toasted

2 C. cooked brown rice


Place tofu on a plate, and top with a cutting board. Place several cans of food on the board to weight it down. Let tofu rest 30 minutes while water is squeezed out. Cut tofu into small cubes. While tofu drains, lightly steam broccoli until crisp tender, about 5 minutes. Set aside. Heat 2 tsp. of oil in wok or large nonstick skillet over high heat. When hot, add tofu and cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes to brown. Transfer to a shallow bowl. Add the remaining 1 tsp. oil to wok, followed by scallions, garlic, pepper, and broccoli. Stir fry 2 minutes over medium high heat. Stir in soy sauce, almonds, and tofu, and gently toss to combine. Serve each portion with 1/2 C. of brown rice.
