Ingredients

Main ingredients

1 block of tofu (pressed and cubed)
2 cloves garlic (crushed and finely chopped)
1 1 inch piece of root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
1 large carrot (sliced lengthways finely)
1 red pepper (sliced lengthways finely)
1 orange pepper (sliced lengthways finely)
1 small courgette (julienned)
5 closed cup mushrooms, sliced
1/2 small avocado (cubed)
brown rice • 200 g

For the sauce:

00% peanuts (no added oil/salt) peanut butter • 1 tbsp
tamari or soy sauce • 1 tbsp
lime juice • 1 tbsp
maple syrup • 1 tbsp
water to loosen • 3 tbsp

To top:

sesame seeds (dry, toasted until light brown) • 1 tbsp
3 spring onion greens, chopped
1 squeeze of lime juice
tamari to taste • 1 tsp

Steps

Method:

1

Bake the tofu on greaseproof paper in a preheated oven at 180 fan for 25 minutes.

2

Cook the rice as per instructions.

3

Meanwhile, heat a little oil/water in a wok (or a pan if you do not have a wok) and saute the ginger and garlic - cook for a couple of minutes (you may need to add a little more water if it looks like it’s starting to stick). Then add the carrots and peppers and cook for 4 minutes.

4

Add the mushrooms and courgette and cook for another 2 minutes.

5

Whisk the sauce ingredients together and add to the wok, gently warming through.

6

Meanwhile toast the sesame seeds in a small non-stick pan on a medium heat until light brown, keeping an eye on them so they do not burn.

7

Take the wok off the heat and stir through the cooked rice, avocado and cooked tofu.

8

Serve topped with the toasted sesame seeds and spring onion greens. Squeeze a little lime juice over the top and a little tamari. Enjoy!
