Easy Peasy Kinda Chinesey

I had to make something healthy for dinner, especially after having eaten Cuban sandwiches for lunch. I remembered I had some firm tofu in the fridge so I picked up some broccoli and this is what we had..

Tofu with garlic/scallions served with Broccoli and Rice

1 package firm organic tofu, cubed
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 scallions, sliced cross-wise in thin rings
a few splashes soy sauce
dribbling of sesame oil
corn or canola oil

1 bunch of broccoli, stems peeled and cut, florets

1. Put rice on to boil
2. Boil water and cook broccoli - add stems first and cook 8 minutes, add florets and cook about 8 minutes or until tender. Drain
3.Saute garlic and scallions in a tablespoon or two of canola oil for two/three minutes. Do not allow to burn.
4. Add tofu, soy sauce and sesame oil and toss. Cover and cook a few minutes longer.
5. Serve over rice with broccoli on the side.
