INSTRUCTIONS

1
Cook the quinoa

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil for the broccoli. Add quinoa, 1¼ cups water, and a pinch of salt to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until water is absorbed and grains are tender, 12 to 15 minutes. (4-serving meal: use 2½ cups water).

2
Prepare the ginger garlic sauce

Add ginger, garlic, tamari, turbinado sugar, and rice vinegar to a medium bowl. Whisk the ginger garlic sauce to combine.

3
Crisp the tofu

Add tofu, cornstarch, just 2 tsp sesame seeds, and a pinch of salt and pepper to a large bowl and toss to coat tofu. Heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add coated tofu and cook, tossing occasionally, until crispy and browned in places, 5 to 8 minutes. (4-serving meal: use 4 tsp sesame seeds, 4 tbsp vegetable oil). TIP: Work in batches for the 4-serving meal, adding more vegetable oil as needed.

4
Add the sauce

Add scallion to the skillet with the tofu and cook, 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, add ginger garlic sauce, and toss. Cook until sauce thickens, about 30 seconds. TIP: If you’re making the 4-serving meal, add all the crisped tofu back to the skillet before adding the scallion and sauce.

5
Cook the broccoli

Add broccoli florets to the saucepan of boiling water and cook until florets are tender and bright green, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and add a pinch of salt and pepper.

6
Serve

Divide the quinoa and broccoli between large plates and top with General Tso’s tofu. Sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds. Enjoy!
