Sick Tofu

I like to eat lots of garlic, ginger, and onions when I feel a cold coming on.  Not that it seems to particularly help, but at least it gives me a brief glimmer of false hope and a feeling of virtuous proactivity.

I made this garliclicious tofu yesterday to try to fend off a sore throat…in which regard it was a complete failure, but it did taste great. 

2 T olive oil
1 cup green onions, thinly sliced
10-12 cloves garlic, pressed
1 T ginger
1 package super-firm tofu or baked tofu, sliced into very thin strips
1 cup vegetable broth, mixed with 2 t cornstarch
2 c broccoli florets

The process
  1. Steam broccoli a few minutes until half-cooked.  Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, Heat oil in a large skillet. 
  3. Over medium heat, sauté garlic, onions, and ginger 3-5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Add tofu, broccoli, and broth, and stir to combine.
  5. Simmer about 2 minutes or until sauce thickens.
  6. Serve over rice.
