    4. 4
      Set aside.

    8. 8
      Cut the stalks diagonally into thin slices.
    9. 9
      Coarsely chop the flowerettes.
    10. 10
      Set aside.
    11. 11
      Begin heating the large skillet.
    12. 12
      When it is hot add 1 tbsp of the oil.
    13. 13
      Add half the garlic.
    14. 14
      Salt lightly.
    15. 15
      Sauté over medium heat for 1 minute, then add the tofu chunks.
    16. 16
      Turn the heat up a little, and stir-fry the tofu for 5-8 minutes.
    17. 17
      Transfer it, including whatever liquid it might have expressed, to the saucepanful of peanut sauce.
    18. 18
      Mix together gently.

    22. 22

    24. 24
      On another burner, begin heating the peanut-tofu sauce on a low heat.
    25. 25
      It shouldn't actually cook-it only needs to be warmed through.

      Add 2-3 tbsp tamari and stir-fry over medium-high heat until the broccoli is bright green and just tender.

      Pour the heated peanut sauce over the sauté.
    29. 29
      Toss everything gently until everything is coated with everything else.
    30. 30
      Serve over long-grained white or brown rice (basmati is good).

      I give this recipe 5 stars because it was really simple, very very good and everyone enjoyed it. I used chicken instead of tofu, but only 1 skinless/boneless breast sliced very thinly. It wasn't as spicy as I thought it was going to be by the comments provided earlier, so I added more cayenne pepper as I was cooking. Very nice, very tasty peanut sauce that I can see being used in other stir-frys. It also took less time than I had expected, less than 30 minutes total. Thank you Carol!

      I loved this meal, but my husband and my two-year-old barely ate when I served it.
