I received a Cauldron voucher with my Tesco clubcard vouchers and decided to try out some tofu. I had some cracking crispy tofu at a dim sum place over in Shoreditch and thought I’d have a go at replicating it.

0.5) boil up a pan of brown rice. (1/2 cup rice to 1 cup water, boil then simmer with a lid on for 20 mins)

1) prepare the tofu how it says to in this very useful video on the Couldron website – wrap in kitchen roll and press with a board for 20 mins.

2) chop up the tofu and roll in beaten egg.

3) place some flour on a plate and mix with Chinese 5 spice and chilli flakes. Roll the eggy tofu in the mix and shallow fry.

4) chop up 1/2 red onion, 1 small carrot and a few broccoli florets.

5) remove tofu from frying pan and mop up excess oil with some kitchen roll. Add onion and carrot to the pan and fry. Add brocolli to boiling water.

6) in a bowl mix up 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1/2 tsp mince ginger, 1 small garlic glove and a shake of chill flakes.

7) put cooked rice in the pan with the onion and carrot in; add the soy sauce mix, finally add the boiled broccoli.

Pop all in a bowl and gobble it up! Yum.
