1 block of firm tofu, pressed and cut into cubes 1/2 cup soy sauce 1/4 cup mirin 2 tablespoons maple syrup or brown sugar 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1 teaspoon grated ginger 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water (optional, for thickening)

Heat a bit of oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the tofu cubes and cook until all sides are golden brown.

For the Charred Broccoli

Heat sesame oil or vegetable oil in a separate pan over medium-high heat.

Add broccoli florets and cook until they are charred and tender-crisp. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3

Arrange the charred broccoli alongside the teriyaki tofu on a plate.
