    Chipotle-Orange Broccoli & Tofu

    Chipotle peppers add kick to this tofu and broccoli stir-fry recipe. If you’re shy about spice, cut back on the amount or leave them out completely. Serve over brown basmati rice.

    Ingredients

    • 1 14-ounce package extra-firm water-packed tofu
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
    • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
    • 6 cups broccoli florets
    • 1 cup orange juice
    • 1 tablespoon minced chipotle in adobo, (see Tip), seeded if desired
    • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

    Instructions

    Step 1
    Drain tofu and pat dry; cut into 1/2- to 3/4-inch cubes. Sprinkle tofu on all sides with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu and cook in a single layer, stirring every couple of minutes, until golden brown, 7 to 9 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.
    Step 2
    Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and broccoli to the pan and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring, until the broccoli is bright green, about 1 minute. Add orange juice and chipotle and cook, stirring frequently, until the broccoli is just tender, 2 to 3 minutes more.
    Step 3
    Return the tofu to the pan. Cook, gently stirring, until the tofu is heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in cilantro.

    Tips

    Tip: Look for the small cans of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce with Mexican foods at large supermarkets.
