1-2-3 Teriyaki Tofu and Broccoli

Say it with me, it's as easy as 1, 2, 3.

While I do enjoy the complex and complicated meals, every mum needs an easy night of stress free, easy cooking. I also realize that when you're changing over to a vegetarian or vegan diet, the overwhelming amount of recipes out there are complicated, or have a ton of mystery ingredients. So here's a super simple favorite of ours that is ready in 3 easy steps and about 40 minutes.


1 head of broccoli, chopped
1 block of tofu, cubed
1 cup of brown rice
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce

Step 1: Cook rice according to directions. Do NOT stir the rice (this makes it gummy) simply add in the water, cover and simmer for about 40 minutes.

Step 2:  Saute the tofu in a few tablespoons of oil until browned on all sides.

Step 3: Add in a few tablespoons of water, broccoli and teriyaki sauce, cover and simmer for about 3 to 5 minutes, until broccoli is bright green, but still crunchy.

Now, wasn't that easy?
