Broiled Tofu With No-Cook Peanut Sauce

Broiling tofu gives it a crispy texture without the hassle of deep-frying. The peanut sauce is so versatile that it can double as a veggie dip or be tossed with cold pasta and chicken for lunch. Picky eaters may prefer red peppers, carrot or sugar snap peas instead of broccoli, so just substitute your favourite vegetable.
