1 cup dry brown rice
2 stalks fresh broccoli (12 ounces)
1/3 cup vegetable broth, reduced sodium
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
14 grams dry sherry, (1 tablespoon)
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon canola oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium red sweet pepper, cut into thin bite-size strips
8 ounces extra-firm tofu (fresh bean curd), drained and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 tablespoons chopped cashews

Recipe Directions for Broccloli with ginger tofu

  1. Cook rice according to package directions; keep warm.

  2. Remove flowerets from broccoli stalks and cut, as necessary, into smaller flowerets. Peel broccoli stems; cut crosswise into thin rounds. Set broccoli aside. (You should have 4 to 4-1/2 cups.)

  3. In a small bowl combine the chicken broth, soy sauce, sherry, ginger, and cornstarch. Set aside.

  4. Pour oil into a large skillet or wok. Preheat over medium-high heat. Stir-fry garlic in hot oil for 15 seconds. Add broccoli and sweet pepper; stir-fry 4 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Push vegetables to the side of skillet. Stir vegetable broth mixture; add to the center of skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Gently stir in tofu. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes more or until heated through. Serve over rice; sprinkle with cashews.
