Easy Kids Tofu and Broccoli (Lunch)
This is a super easy, go to lunch I make for my daughter. She loves Asian flavors, so this gets destroyed every time I serve it to her.
All you need is broccoli, tofu and Hoisin sauce. You can sub Oyster sauce for Hoisin, but Hoisin rules.
I put everything in a plastic colander inside a plastic bowl filled with some water. This way I can steam in the microwave.
I cut up some broccoli (or use frozen) and drizzle a little hoisin sauce over top.
Dice up some tofu (I use extra-firm)
Add the tofu, along with another drizzle of Hoisin, a small drizzle of sesame oil and a pinch of chinese 5 spice.
Cover it with plastic wrap (it'll stay without rubber bands or anything, from the steam generated) and steam it in the microwave (in my case 3 minutes, but microwaves vary).
Toss everything a few times, wait til it's cool enough for little fingers and serve!
This takes me 7 minutes, start to finish, until it's in her mouth.
