Sesame tofu

Sesame tofu

I made this sesame tofu the other day. Some beautiful broccolini found at the farmers market compelled me to make this delicious stir-fry.

I first wanted to make some soup with it and thought of this instead as daughter tends to devour stir-fry and turn her nose of at soups. I prefer soup but as a parent, I don’t always get what I want!Sesame tofu

It goes really well with some rice spiced with cumin seeds or cardamon pods.
