This Garlic Tofu Broccoli Skillet recipe is made in just one pan. An easy and flavorful vegan dinner!
Tofu used to be one of those things that I absolutely loved to eat, but could never figure out how to cook at home.
After I learned two simple ways to cook tofu I use it all of the time now!
My honey ginger tofu stir fry really sealed the deal and I realized that I could make easy and flavorful tofu in my own kitchen!
This garlic tofu broccoli skillet is made in just one big pan and tastes like takeout.
I took one bite of the broccoli and realized it tasted just like the garlic broccoli that I order from a local Chinese restaurant.
First, you will press the tofu.
Then pan fry it.
Then add mounds of fresh garlic, ginger, green onion, and a easy 3 ingredient sauce.
Oh yeah, and fresh crunchy broccoli!
I love my broccoli with a bit of texture, so I cook it for just a few minutes while still leaving a bit of a bite to it.
The secret to the flavorful sauce is in the fresh garlic and ginger.
Please promise me you won’t skimp on this! I swear it is worth the time chopping it up.
The flavor is so rich and deep with minimal ingredients, thanks to the fresh ingredients!
This recipe is made with just 9 ingredients!
We served it over white rice and three adults finished off the whole recipe.
I would say for more normal sized portions it would easily serve four adults (we were very hungry!)
I’ve been craving this ever since I made it.
I’m thinking this might need to be one of my next recipe videos for my facebook page!
