NOTES: I love Trader Joe’s organic Sprouted Tofu, or feel free to substitute salmon or chicken, searing in the pan and finishing in the oven, adding the sauce after.
Drain and blot tofu with paper towels and cut into half inch thick pieces. Blot again.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add salt, pepper and smashed garlic, directly in the skillet. Swirl and cook for 1-2 minutes until the garlic is fragrant.
Sear tofu until golden brown, over medium heat, about 5 minutes each side.
At the same time, fill a medium pot with ¾ inch of water, and set on the stove. Place a steam basket inside and layer up the broccolini. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Steam for 5 minutes or desired doneness – less for green beans, use your own judgement 😉
