Tenderstem broccoli, tofu and furikake

We love simple and tasty food that anyone can do at home in minutes. Here is exactly one of those recipes – ideal when you’re tired and just in need for a quick Asian fix. The star ingredient is furikake – a Japanese mix of dried goodness (sesame seeds, salt, seaweed & more) meant to be sprinkled on top of rice. But it’s soo good you can use it anywhere! We used it with broccoli and tofu!


This is what “industrial” furikake looks like. You can find it in most asian groceries, and if not you can do it yourself (see some excellent recipes herehere, or here). It’s better to do it yourself, but when you’re too tired, the ready-made one works just fine (it’s mostly dried fishy stuff with some MSG). Mix it with some broccoli and chilli and you will get this Asian inspired feast in a few minutes (literally):


Tenderstem Broccoli, Tofu, and Furikake


  • 300g Tenderstem broccoli
  • 1 Small chilli
  • 300g Tofu (firm)
  • 3 heaped teaspoons Furikake
  • 2 tablespoons Soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil


Step 1
Heat the oil in a pan, when hot add the garlic and chilli finely chopped, and cook for 2 minutes.
Step 2
Before the garlic changes color add the tenderstem broccoli and sauté for 4-5 minutes. You might want to add a little water to help steam the broccoli and avoid burning it.
Step 3
Then add the firm tofu cut into cubes (1 cm will do) together with the soy sauce and mix it all. Cook for a few more minutes (2-3) with furikake and sesame oil. Serve right away on rice or egg noodles (yes... cooked...).
