Broccoli & tofu casserole
I love broccoli, it is by far my most favorite green food. This is a super yummy and quick weeknight meal to make. I used the left over rice in the fridge from the night before. You could totally cook a fresh pot though. I made my own white sauce out of celery,onion and garlic. Pour that on top with some fresh bread crumbs drizzled with butter....you can't go wrong. Serve it with a big salad and dinner is made!
