2 1/4
cups water
1
tablespoon butter or margarine
1/8
teaspoon salt
3
tablespoons sweet chili sauce
3
tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
1
teaspoon toasted or dark sesame oil
1
package (12 oz) extra-firm water-packed tofu, drained, cut into 1-inch cubes

tablespoons canola oil
4
cups fresh broccoli florets
1
large red bell pepper, cut into 2-inch strips
2
teaspoons grated orange peel
2/3

  1. In 2-quart saucepan, heat rice, 2 cups of the water, the butter and salt to boiling. Reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 45 to 50 minutes.

Add remaining 1/4 cup water; cook 2 to 3 minutes longer, stirring frequently, until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add tofu, orange peel and reserved chili sauce mixture.
