Orange Tofu Broccoli

I have used Broccoli with tofu. But you may use any veggie of your choice. Snow peas, bell pepper and Mushroom would go well. I have used Indian Ching’s brand Dark soy sauce. That’s why the color of the sauce is dark and not orange. If you want orange color use light soy sauce. This Orange Broccoli Tofu can be Served with white rice or brown rice.
