Tofu omelettes with tenderstem broccoli
Sunday 14 July 2013
We keep a packet or two of tofu in the fridge, so we can throw these together at a moment's notice. I like to think of this as my healthy version of fast food.
6 eggs, lightly beaten
1 garlic clove, crushed
2cm ginger, peeled and grated
8 spring onions, sliced
400g/13oz firm silken tofu, crumbled
Light-flavoured oil for frying
For the broccoli
1 tbsp light-flavoured oil
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 red chilli, chopped
400g/13oz tenderstem broccoli, trimmed
3 tbsp chicken stock or water
For the omelettes, mix the eggs, garlic, ginger and spring onions with some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Fold through the tofu. Heat a little oil in a large, non-stick frying pan, ladle in tablespoons of the omelette mix, and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Keep warm.
For the broccoli, heat a wok or large frying pan over a high heat. Add the oil and use to stir-fry the garlic and chilli for 30 seconds. Add the broccoli and cook, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes.
Pour in the stock or water and stir-fry for another minute, or until just tender. Serve with the tofu omelettes and some Asian chilli sauce, if you like.
