What's For Dinner?

I was contemplating dinner one night this week when this recipe popped up in my email. I had most all the ingredients except the broccoli and rice vinegar. Thankfully there was a Kroger nearby.

This was so tasty and light and easy to make.

Peanut Sauce with Tofu and Broccoli:

1 block extra-firm tofu, pressed, cut into squares
1 T. canola oil
2 t. soy sauce
2 t. mirin
1 head of broccoli florets, steamed
1 carrot, peeled and shredded
Peanuts, crushed (optional)
1 C. dry brown rice

Peanut dressing:
1/4 C. peanut butter
1/4 C. water
1 T. sugar
1 T. soy sauce
1 T. seasoned rice vinegar
1 t. hot chili oil (optional)
1 pinch salt

Start cooking your rice. Mix sauce ingredients until smooth and set aside.

Pan fry tofu in the oil over high heat until browned on both sides. Drain and return to hot pan (turn off the heat). Mix soy sauce and mirin together and pour over tofu, mixing well. It will form a glaze.

Plate rice, add broccoli, tofu, carrot and crushed peanuts. Drizzle with sauce and serve.
