There are three keys to making tofu taste delicious. First, select the right variety. Tofu comes in many forms, but the extra-firm variety—with its spongy, dense texture and low water content—is best for frying, as in this recipe. Second, unless you are using a soft or silken tofu, you’ll almost always want to press out the excess water in tofu. This drastically improves the texture, helps the tofu hold its shape when cooked, and enables more flavor to seep into the tofu. Finally, don’t be stingy with seasonings, whether it’s spices, aromatics, or sauces. Tofu is a blank canvas and easily takes on the flavors it’s given. For the tofu skeptics in my life, I often recommend trying this Chinese takeout-style tofu. It’s a little crispy on the outside, soft and tender in the inside, and saturated with lots of bold flavors like ginger, Sriracha, and toasted sesame. Since broccoli cooks very quickly in the Instant Pot, this recipe calls for pressure-cooking the tofu for a few minutes before adding the broccoli. To make this a complete, balanced meal, serve alongside rice or your favorite grain.Inspired by: https://recipes.instantpot.com/recipe/chinese-takeout-style-tofu-and-broccoli/
