Trying tofu at home...

Fresh Broccoli (in a steam-able bag)
Firm Tofu
Tandoori Paste
Brown Sesame Seeds
Red Rice Noodles/Pad Thai
Liquid Aminos
Olive oil spray
Olive Oil

I love tofu, but have been hesitant to try it at home. This recipe was quick and turned out great. Not too bad for a first effort. Extra tips: keep the heat steady for the tofu to achieve a crispy exterior for the cubes.Also, be sure to rinse the rice noodles well to avoid them becoming sticky.Steam the broccoli in a microwave. Put water on to boil for the noodles. Cut tofu into cubes, spray pan with non-stick spray, drizzle oil oil in pan, drop a tablespoon of tandoori paste into oil and mix well. Drop tofu into hot oil and spices and cook each side till golden/red (from spices). Add sesame seeds towards end of browning tofu. Add a dash of Soy or Liquid Amino to browned tofu and sesame seeds. When water boils drop in noodles and remove from heat. Let soak for 5-10 minutes, drain and rinse well. Plate noodles, steamed broccoli and tofu. Enjoy! Cooking time 10-15 minutes from start to finish.
