Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Servings 2


What You’ll Need:

  • 1 head broccoli stem and all chopped
  • 1 5-7oz bag slaw mix, any variety (or 1/2 small cabbage, chopped)
  • 1/3 c water
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 block firm tofu
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • garlic powder for sprinkling
  • ginger powder for sprinkling

For the glaze:

  • 1/4 c Tamari
  • 1/4 apricot jam no corn syrup added
  • OPTIONAL but highly recommended: Everything Bagel Seasoning


  • Slice tofu in half lengthwise. Press by layering on a plate: tea towel, tofu, tea towel, another plate. Press the top plate a bit to begin releasing water from the tofu & set aside.
  • Combine water, salt & veggies in a large frying pan or wok. Turn on medium high heat and cover. Cook for 5 minutes, or until water has just about disappeared. Toss veggies in 1 Tbsp coconut oil & transfer to a plate for now.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp sesame oil in the same pan. Add tofu steaks to hot pan. Sprinkle side facing up with garlic powder. Set timer for 4 minutes to sear.
  • While tofu works its magic, combine Tamari & jam in a small blender or food processor. Puree & set aside.
  • Flip tofu& give pan a little shake for oil to re-spread on the pan. Sprinkle opposite side with ginger powder. Set timer for a final 4 minutes.
  • Serve tofu over stir fried veggies. Drizzle with apricot glaze & bagel seasoning if desired!
