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.

  1. Drain tofu and pat dry; cut into ½- to ¾-inch cubes. Sprinkle tofu on all sides with ¼ 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. 
  2. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and broccoli to the pan and sprinkle with the remaining ¼ 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. 
  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.
  • Tip: Look for the small cans of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce with Mexican foods at large supermarkets.
