This quick and easy Asian stir-fry is a delicious and satisfying vegetarian meal. The secret to the best crispy tofu, without deep frying, is coating the tofu with cornstarch. Start by combining 1/2 cup vegetable broth, 1/4 cup dry sherry, 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar and 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper in a small bowl. Cut a 14-ounce package of extra-firm tofu into 3/4-inch cubes and pat dry, then sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Gently toss the tofu with 2 tablespoons cornstarch in a large bowl. Next, heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the tofu and cook undisturbed until browned. Gently turn and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned all over. Transfer to a plate. Reduce the heat to medium and add 1 tablespoon each canola oil, minced garlic and minced ginger. Cook until fragrant. Then add 6 cups broccoli florets and 3 tablespoons water. Cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until tender-crisp. Stir the reserved broth mixture and add to the pan. Cook until the sauce is thickened, about 1 to 2 minutes. Then return the tofu to the pan. Toss to combine with the broccoli and sauce. Find this recipe and more healthy recipes on
