This Sesame Tofu & Broccoli is a quick and easy dish centered around the nutritional powerhouse that is broccoli. The tangy sauce has just a hint of sweetness that is balanced by the rich flavor of the toasted sesame seeds.

Do you think I could use white miso instead of dark one for this recipe?

This was so flavorful and delicious!

I often struggle to find recipe for which I can find all the ingredients (I live on Japan).

We are also enjoying the sauce as a dressing. Thank you, Jill!
