Broccoli and Tofu in Garlic Sauce Recipe


  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Approx 2 cups broccoli, chopped
  • 1 block firm or extra firm tofu, pressed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup water

How to Make It

  1. First, prepare your tofu. Like most vegan tofu recipes, this one will taste best if you press the tofu first. Not sure how to do that? See this easy step-by-step guide: How to press tofu.
  2. Cut the tofu into 1-inch cubes.
  3. Chop the broccoli, dice the onion, and mince the garlic.
  4. In a large skillet, sauté onions and garlic in olive oil until the onions turn clear, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Add the tofu, ginger, cayenne, and broccoli to the pan and continue to cook until broccoli is done, another 6 to 8 minutes.
  6. In a separate small bowl, mix together the cornstarch, soy sauce, and water, then add this mixture to the broccoli and tofu.
  7. Cook until sauce thickens, then remove from heat.
  8. Serve the broccoli and tofu in garlic sauce over rice or whole grains and enjoy.
  9. This recipe is lovely served hot. You can also refrigerate the leftovers to reheat the next day for lunch or dinner.
