Tofu Broccoli Skillet

As a busy mom, I'm always making quick and easy recipes that also taste mind-blowing. This Tofu Broccoli Skillet dish is one that is on a constant rotation on my menu.

As a working mom, I understand how difficult it can be to prepare healthy home-cooked meals that don't take hours to prepare. Who wants to be slaving in the kitchen after spending hours at work and commute.

We want to get the meal prepared and ready in no time so that we can spend quality time with our families instead. I want to show you that this is very possible! That is the reason why most of my recipes are quick and easy but flavorful and amazing, just like my General Tso's Chickpeas and Jamaican Spicy Potato Curry.

Although I am a mom who works from home, and home-school Daevyd. I find that I'm running around all day and when it comes to dinner time, I just want to be in and out of the kitchen.

I look forward to when my hubby gets home to pamper him with a delicious home-cooked meal and to catch up on how he spent his day and share with him how Daevyd and I spent ours.

I always use super/extra firm tofu that doesn't need much pressing, pressing out the water will improve the texture of your tofu. Here is an article about Tofu Pressing.

    This dish was quick, easy and super tasty!! I discovered your recipes about 6 weeks ago and I must tell you that I cook at least three of your dishes per week. Everything I’ve tried to date has been a hit. BIG UP!

      Hello Jasmine thank you for your kind words, I’m so happy you enjoyed it. It is so ironic that I just made a variation of this recipe and the thought came to me that I haven’t shared this for quite a while and how I should share it next only to leave the kitchen and now find your comment. Blessings!

    Was very good! I had just bought soy curls for first time and used them in place of tofu. I am trying very hard to adopt a plant based lifestyle and this recipe definitely pushed me in the right direction. Much thanks!

    This looks so yum – I can never get my tofu to come out as perfect as yours!

      Thank you Zoe, this method is very simple so try it. It is just the oil, salt and garlic at first. Do it in a pan that does stick and brown it, then add the sauce. Will come out perfect.
