Three-Way Sesame Tofu with Spicy Broccoli

I got this from Vegan Planet. This is my FAVORITE cookbook ever! I have yet to try a recipe from this book that wasn't a huge hit in my family.

Three-Way Sesame Tofu with Spicy Broccoli (I will add pictures once I make it)

2 1/2 cups broccoli florets
1/4 cup tahini
2 Tbs tamari or other soy sauce
1/3 cup water, or as needed
1 cup sesame seeds
One 16-oz package extra-firm tofu, drained and cut into 1/2-inch-wide by 1/2-inch-thick strips
2 Tbs peanut oil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp toasted sesame oil

1. Steam broccoli until crisp-tender. 2 to 3 minutes, then plunge into a bowl of ice water. Drain and set aside.
2. In a small, shallow bowl, combine tahini, 1 tablespoon tamari, and enough water to make a smooth paste. Place sesame seeds on a plate. Dredge tofu strips in the tahini mixture, then coat with the sesame seeds.
3. heat 1 tablespoon of the peanut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, add the tofu strips and cook until lightly browned on both sides, about 5 minutes total. Transfer to a serving platter and keep warm.
4.Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon peanut oil in the same skillet over medium heat. Add the red pepper flakes and broccoli and stir-fry until hot, about 2 minutes. Splash with the remaining 1 tablespoon tamari and spoon the broccoli over the tofu. Drizzle the sesame oil over all and serve hot.
