Have you ever wondered what to do with tofu? It’s high in protein, just lacking a little in taste, which makes it a perfect base for this recipe. I like this for lunch on the weekends:
1/2 block firm tofu (not silken)
1 carrot, finely julienned
1 small onion, chopped
small handful of finely chopped veg: spinach, broccoli, mushrooms, courgettes
teaspoon fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, crushed (optional)
decent amount of fresh parsley or coriander
generous splash of good soy sauce
drizzle sesame oil
dash cooking oil
Heat the oil in a frying pan and sauté the onion. Crumble the tofu into the pan by squeezing it through your fingers, add the ginger, garlic (optional), soy sauce and sesame oil and stir well. Add the other veg and keep stirring. It only needs a couple of minutes, until the veg are just cooked. Add the fresh herbs just at the end and stir through.
Serve on wholegrain / rye toast and garnish with fresh parsley / coriander.
