    Broccoli and Tofu in spicy peanut sauce
    Recipe Source: The Enchanted Broccoli Forest

    Prep time: 45 Min. Cook time: 30 Min. Serves: 4

    2 tbsp peanut butter

    1/8 cup hot water

    6 tbsp vinegar (rice or cider)

    3 tbsp soy sauce

    1 tbsp blackstrap molasses

    1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

    1 1-lb bunch of fresh broccoli

    3 tsp. peanut or canola oil

    2 tsp. freshly-grated ginger root

    4 medium cloves garlic, minced or put through a garlic press

    1 lb. tofu, cut in small cubes

    2 c. thinly-sliced onions

    1 c. coarsely-chopped raw peanuts (I seldom add these)

    3 tbsp. soy sauce (2 or 3 T)

    2 freshly-minced scallions

    Servings- 4

    Points - 6

    If PB increased to 1/4 cup - 7 points


    Part One: The Sauce

    In a small saucepan, whisk together the peanut butter and the hot water until you have a uniform mixture. Whisk in the remaining ingredients, and set aside.

    Part Two: The Saute

    1. Cut off the bottom half-inch of the broccoli stems. Shave off the tough outer skins of the stalks with a sharp paring knife or a vegetable peeler. Cut the stalks diagonally into thin slices. Coarsely chop the flowerettes. Set aside.

    2. Cut the tofu into 1 inch cubes and place them in a medium sized pan. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Loewr the heat and ismmer for about 10 minutes Drain and set aside. (Note: precooking the tofu in this way helps it hold its shape in the stir fry)

    3. Wipe the wok with a paper towel, and return it to the stove to begin heating once again. Add the remaining 2 tbsp. of oil to the hot wok, and follow suit with the remaining ginger and garlic. Salt lightly. Add the onions, and grind in some fresh black pepper. Saute, stirring frequently, over medium heat, until the onions are soft (about 5 minutes). [Note: I stop this step before the onions are quite soft.]

    4. On another burner, begin heating the peanut-tofu sauce on a very low flame. It shouldn’t actually cook—it only needs to be warmed through.

    5. Add the broccoli and the chopped peanuts to the wok. Add 2-3 tbsp. tamari, and stir-fry over medium-high heat until the broccoli is bright green and just tender (about 5 minutes).

    6. Pour the heated peanut sauce over the saute. Toss gently until everything is coated with everything else. Sprinkle in the minced scallions as you toss.

    Serve over rice, and pass around some additional tamari, hot sauce, and even more chopped peanuts, if desired.
