Summary

I was in East Bay  area a couple of weeks ago and had an opportunity to be at the Food Truck fair with my daughter and her family. It was Amazing!!!

All different kinds of food made right in the Trucks-fresh and  amazing!! I tried the Korean Tofu dish, it was really nice and spicy with Chili Sauce. Broccoli with cheese and topped with spicy sauted Tofu  I  thought of making similar item with  Teriyaki sauce. This dish was very healthy and for Vegans too. Good protein.

So I bought some Broccoli and Tofu. I had Teriyaki sauce at home. I buy the thick one. I used Peanuts, it gave an extra taste and crunch. I used some shredded carrots and some cilantro for garnish.

I steamed the Broccoli in the Microwave -you can also steam it in the pot.

I think this dish can be tried with many different sauces and would make a great quick snack or lunch. Next time I will use Curry sauce and see.

It is best to serve fresh-does not take long to make it.

    Ingredients

  • 1 Cup of Broccoli cut into small pieces-no stems
  • 1 box -container of Firm Tofu
  • 3 tablespoon or about of Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of Cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoon of Peanuts-optional-
  • 1Teaspoon of Sesame Seeds
  • 1 tablespoon each of Shredded Carrots and chopped cilantro

    Instructions

  • Cut broccoli spears in small bite size pieces-no stems and wash and Steam them for 1 minute in Microwave . Once done, put it in a flat serving bowl.

  • Cut Tofu in one inch size pieces, Heat oil at medium heat add peanuts, add Tofu. Reduce heat and let it simmer-you can remove liquid if too much. There will be liquid from Tofu even after draining it.

  • Turn the Tofu gently once or twice. once the Tofu turns slightly brown, add Teriyaki sauce and gently mix.

  • Pour the Tofu mixture over Broccoli, add carrots, cilantro and sesame seeds.
