Pan-Fried Tofu and Broccoli

If you’re planning on eating light for a while, one of the ingredients you can add more often to your diet is tofu. It is low in calories, but relatively high in proteins. It is usually well marinated, and we’ve done that, spicing it up with chili flakes, soy sauce, and cognac, just to name a few. You can serve it with all kinds of veggies next to it, but for now you can try a classic combo, pairing it up with broccoli.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
