To cook the brown rice, heat the butter on medium heat in a small saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 3 minutes, until the garlic is fragrant. Add in broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add rice and reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 30 minutes. Fluff with a fork once done!
While the rice is cooking, you’ll have just enough time to complete the rest of the meal. In a large pan, add olive oil and turn on medium heat.
After heating up olive oil, toss the tofu with arrowroot starch and cook for about 2 minutes per side until all sides are golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
Add garlic, onion, broccoli, red pepper flakes, sesame seeds, and salt. Cook for about 5-7 minutes until broccoli is fully cooked.
Add a pinch of olive oil to a small saucepan and heat on medium. Add garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add in all other ingredients except for the arrowroot starch. Bring the mix to a light simmer, and slowly whisk in the arrowroot starch. The sauce should begin to thicken, if it is not, add in a pinch more arrowroot starch.
Once the sauce is ready, toss the tofu with the sweet and spicy sauce. Serve over a bed of rice and broccoli. Add extra sauce on the top and enjoy this healthier alternative to takeout! For extra spice, drizzle with more Fix Signature Sriracha!
