Recipe: Easy Broccoli



It was 7pm when I opened the fridge, only broccoli met with my eyes. Just when I was scratching my head while closing the fridge door, I saw an almost empty bottle of oyster sauce forgotten for quite a while.

Then, a packet of fish tofu left untouched in the freezer sprung to my mind. Hence, a dish was formed for solving another dinner on weekday.

Ingredients (Serve 3-4)

  • 1  floret of broccoli (size doesn’t matter)
  • 1 clove of garlic (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp of light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp of oyster sauce (optional)
  • 10 fish tofu cubes (that would be a pack normally)
  1. Cut up the broccoli in bite size, rinse and drain.
  2. Thaw the fish tofu, rinse and drain.
  3. Then, cut a cube of fish tofu into 4 quarters.
  4. Heat up a wok with light veg (1 tbsp) until it smokes.
  5. Add in fish tofu to brown, then take them out and set aside (diced chicken or beef slices would be just as good).
  6. Now, add in another 1 tbsp of oil. When the oil heated up. Toss in chopped garlic, stir fry briefly.
  7. Before it starts to brown, add in broccoli.
  8. Stir around to mix into garlic.
  9. Then, add in soy sauce and oyster sauce.
  10. Join in the fish tofu cubes prepared just a while ago to mix around evenly.
  11. Finally, sprinkle salt and black pepper to taste if needed.

  1. mooo mooo… your broc looks a tad overcooked. What you can do is par boil them first (should take 1-2 mins if you cut them up) then refresh in cold water. Then when you stir fry them, you add them at the last minute once you have made the sauce to warm them up (30 secs to 1 min). With brocs, they don’t need that much cooking time to absorb the sauce (because the little florets themselves soak up sauce like no tomorrow). For a bit of a treat try using broccolini or purple sprouting brocs as they are in season now.
