If you have ever wondered how to cook tofu that tastes delicious, this is it!

I took one bite of the broccoli and realized it tasted just like the broccoli with garlic sauce that I order from a local Chinese restaurant.

How To Make Broccoli tofu stir fry

First, you will drain the tofu, and pat it dry.

I love buying pre packaged diced tofu, like I use in this recipe.

It is so convenient!

If you cannot find pre packaged tofu, just drain a block of tofu and press it well before cutting into cubes.

Once you drain your tofu and pat it dry, place the cubes in a bowl.

Toss with cornstarch and shake to coat.

The cornstarch is going to help the tofu get those crispier edges.

How to pan fry the tofu

Heat a large skillet with oil until hot.

Add in your tofu and start to pan fry it.

Cook the tofu for 10 – 15 minutes, stirring often, until all sides are cooked and crispy.

Adding the rest of the stir fry ingredients

Next, add in your fresh garlic, ginger, green onion, broccoli and one batch of homemade stir fry sauce (recipe linked in the instructions below).

These give the dish so much flavor, so do not leave them out!

Keep stirring and cooking until broccoli is to your desired texture and stir fry sauce is thick and sticking to the broccoli and tofu.

I love my broccoli with a bit of crunch, so I cook it for just a few minutes while still leaving a bit of a bite to it.

The texture really adds so much to this stir fry, so be sure you do not overcook your broccoli into mush.

Tips to get the best flavor for your stir fry

The secret to the flavorful sauce is in the fresh garlic and ginger, so do not skip these.

Once you pair them with my 3 ingredient stir fry sauce, magic happens.

I have had people leave out the fresh garlic and ginger and did not like the recipe and that is why!

The recipe, as written, yields the very best stir fry flavor.

Fresh garlic and ginger are total game changers and you absolutely need them in your stir fry!

Please promise me you won’t skimp on this!

I swear it is worth the time chopping it up and it only takes a few minutes.

If you have never tried fresh ginger before, no need to be afraid!

Almost every grocery store should carry it in the produce section.

It looks like a root.

Just cut off the skin, and dice up your ginger with a knife until it’s in minced like tiny pieces.

It is just as easy as garlic!

The flavor is so rich and deep with minimal ingredients, thanks to the fresh ingredients!

This recipe is made with just 9 ingredients and is bursting with flavor.

It is also naturally vegan and gluten free.

We served it over white rice and three adults finished off the whole recipe.

I would say for more normal sized portions it would easily serve four adults (we were very hungry!)

Serve over your choice of grain, or just by itself!

This would be delicious on it’s own, or served over white rice, brown rice, quinoa, etc.

For a twist you could even serve it with brown rice stir fry noodles or ramen noodles.

Even over cauliflower rice would be a great way to serve it!
