  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan/gas mark 4. Cover a tray with baking paper.

  2. Place the tofu on the covered tray and bake for 20 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown.

  3. At the same time, place the rice in a medium-sized pan and add 400ml cold water. Bring to the boil and cover, turning the heat down to low. Simmer the rice for 10-12 minutes.

  4. Mix the sauce ingredients together until smooth.

  5. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan on a medium to low heat. Coat the tofu in half of the sauce, add to the frying pan and fry for 3-5 minutes. Remove the tofu and set aside.

  6. Add the Tenderstem® Purple to the pan and turn up to a higher heat for a few seconds before adding a dash of boiling water. Cover with a lid and steam for 2-3 minutes until “al dente”. Set aside with the tofu. (For a softer bite, leave the Tenderstem® Purple in the pan).

  7. Add the chopped carrot, peas, edamame, crushed garlic and spring onions to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on a medium heat.

  8. Add the cooked rice and heat for a further 5 minutes. Finally, add the tofu, Tenderstem® Purple and remaining sauce to the pan, stir to combine and heat through. To serve, sprinkle with sesame seeds, sliced spring onions, chopped chilli and a squeeze of lime, if you like. Enjoy!
