The health benefits of ginger tofu with green beans and broccoli are not the main factors which cause people to try this dish. Rather, people are influenced by the mouth watering flavors that are combined in the meal. Many vegans and vegetarians have this Asian inspired combination on occasion.
Tofu is a good source of protein for people who do not eat meat. It also helps to reduce bad cholesterol. Green beans are antioxidants and help to strengthen the heart. Broccoli is an anti-inflammatory and is rich in potassium, which improves brain function. Ginger is also a powerful anti-inflammatory and is good for relieving chronic pain.
One of the benefits of cooking this is the speed with which it can be prepared. It takes less than fifteen minutes to peel the ginger, dice the organic block tofu and remove the stems from the green beans and chop the broccoli. if you are only preparing enough for one or two people, you can do all of that in just four or five minutes.
You should cook the tofu until it is golden brown, turning it to ensure that it is crisp on at least two sides before removing it from the pot. Sauté the green beans or broccoli with ginger and other spices, such as scallions and Jamaican scotch bonnet pepper. Add a little water to the pot and allow the vegetables to cook for a few minutes, and then add the cooked tofu.
