This stir-fry is delicious over brown rice or Asian noodles. To toast the cashews, spread them on a baking sheet and cook in a 350-degree oven for about 10 minutes. If you like a sweet-and-sour flavor, add 1 tablespoon of sugar to the sauce in step 4. http://www.marthastewart.com/336453/tofu-and-broccoli-stir-fry?czone=food/dinner-tonight-center/dinner-tonight-main-courses&backto=true&backtourl=/photogallery/quick-better-than-takeout-recipes#slide_50

Recipe Directions for Tofu & Broccoli Stir Fry (Stewart)

  1. Arrange tofu in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with several layers of paper towels. Top with more paper towels and another baking sheet; weight with canned goods. Let tofu drain, about 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, cook broccoli (stalks and florets) in a large pot of boiling salted water until bright green, 2 minutes. Drain; set aside.

  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add tofu; cook until golden brown, turning gently halfway through, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to paper towels.

  4. Meanwhile, make sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, red-pepper flakes, garlic, cornstarch, and 3/4 cup water; set aside.

  5. Add broccoli to skillet; cook over high heat, stirring often, until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk reserved sauce to combine; pour into pan. Return tofu to pan; stir to coat, about 1 minute more. Serve topped with cashews.
