Tofu & Broccoli with Peanut Sauce on Wilted Greens

Let's face it.  I worked ten hours today.  The last thing I want to do is come home and get fancy in the kitchen.  This is the great thing about living with a dog; he won't be critiquing my food.  I gambled with this one in my haste, and I got lucky.

This is so freaking good.

  • 1/2 block of tofu (about 7ounces)
  • 1.5-2 c broccoli, chopped in bite size pieces
  • 2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • & to taste (and feel free to omit/replace these):
    • ginger
    • cumin
    • garlic salt
    • smoked paprika
  • 2 c greens (I used 50/50 spinach & arugula)
  • 1/2 c water (as needed)

Warm up oil in your pan over medium heat.  When it's hot, toss in your tofu and season with the hot sauce and spices.  Saute your tofu until it is browned on all sides.  Add in your broccoli and peanut butter.  Add enough water to keep it from sticking.  Toss gently until it's all coated.  Leave on heat until broccoli is desired tenderness.  Remove from heat.  And allow to cool for a few minutes.

Put two cups of greens on a plate.  Spoon tofu and broccoli over top of the greens evenly.  This will wilt your greens.  Enjoy!
