Ingredients (2 serves) :

  • 300g firm tofu

  • 1 tbsp miso paste

  • 2 tbsp tamari sauce

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • 1/2 lemon

  • 1 cup brown rice

  • 2 tbsp ground almonds

  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds

  • 1 tbsp flour

  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • Large handful of green beans

  • 2 tbsp pickled ginger, finely sliced

  • 1 spring onion, shredded

  • 1 tsp sesame seeds, to serve

Method

  1. Cut the tofu into 4cm chunks. Combine the miso paste with 2 tablespoons of Tamara sauce, a tablespoon of sesame oil and a squeeze of lemon. Drizzle over the tofu and gently toss together so that the pieces are well covered. Cover and pop in the fridge to marinate for a couple of hours, or overnight, if possible.

  2. Cook the rice as per instructions.

  3. In the meantime, combine the ground almonds, sesame seeds, flour and a generous seasoning of salt and pepper. Spread out on a plate and then dredge the tofu through so that it is covered on all sides.

  4. Warm a frying pan over a moderately high heat. Add some oil, let it heat, then gently fry the tofu until golden brown on all sides. Wipe down the pan, add a little sesame oil and quickly fry the green beans for several minutes. Add the rice and grains and quickly heat through, followed by a little soy sauce to taste and the ginger. Toss through the tofu pieces, then scatter over the spring onion and sesame seeds and serve.
