Author Notes

Fresh tofu is made into crumbles and tossed with broccoli and seasoned with sea salt, sesame oil and sesame seeds. Too simple? You will be amazed how good this tastes. Many dishes tries to mask the taste of tofu with strong sauces but this recipe really allows the true goodness of tofu to shine. You can make this not with just broccoli but with blanched spinach, watercress and Korean greens like crown daisies. Possibilities are endless. —JinJoo Lee
