Honey Mustard-Glazed Baked Tofu & Steamed Broccoli w/ Yogurt Dill Dressing - Recipe

Long story short, I had a rough weekend of starchy foods and rich sauces, so come Monday, I'm feeling like having a dinner that'll fill me up and taste divine. This creation incorporates sweetness and spice; a lovely balance of flavours!

Start out with...
extra firm tofu, cut into 1-inch cubes

In a separate bowl, whisk together...
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp tumeric
1 tsp ground ginger
Pinch of cayenne
Salt + pepper to taste
1 tsp Amano brand Genmai (brown rice) miso
1 tsp yellow mustard
a squirt of honey
3 drops of Sriracha
...once those are all whisked up, pour into a plastic bag
Throw the tofu cubes in too, and let marinade for 45min-1hr...Keep in mind, the flavours intensify the longer you let the tofu marinade!

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425

Once the tofu is all marinaded, place onto a parchment paper-lined baking dish. Pour a bit of the marinade over the tofu before placing in oven
Bake on one side for 6 min, flip pieces, bake 6-8 more min

For the broccoli, pour about 2 inches deep of water into a pot. Bring to a boil, and place a metal strainer above the pot, filled with chopped broccoli. Put a lid to cover the strainer, allow to steam for about 5-7 min

While broccoli is steaming, in a small bowl, mix...
1/4 cup fatfree plain yogurt
1 tbsp dill
1 garlic clove, minced

Pour yogurt sauce over broccoli once finished steaming

Once the tofu is all baked, separately mix equal amounts of honey and yellow mustard to pour over prepared tofu. Serve with broccoli as a side. Enjoy! :)
