Cooks In30 Minutes


70g uncooked (or 140g cooked) short grain brown rice (uncooked weight)
140g firm organic tofu, diced into bite-size chunks
1 tsp raw coconut oil
2 handfuls mangetout, topped and tailed
2 handfuls garden peas (fresh or frozen)
1 cup baby spinach leaves, roughly torn
2 cups spring cabbage, roughly chopped
2 spring onions, finely sliced




1 red chilli, de-seeded and finely diced
1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
1 thumb-size piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
1 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)




1 tbsp black (or white) sesame seeds
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp water


  1. The rice can be cooked in advance or while the tofu is marinating (rinse the rice under cold water several times, transfer to a saucepan, cover with water. Bring to the boil, cover with a lid and simmer for 10-15 minutes until cooked and all the water is absorbed).
  2. Place the marinade ingredients into a bowl with the tofu. Stir to combine the ingredients, cover and leave aside for 20 minutes.
  3. Melt the coconut oil in a wok or large non-stick frying pan over a high heat.
  4. Reduce the heat slightly and add the marinaded tofu. Stir fry over a medium heat for 5 minutes until golden.
  5. Add the mangetout, peas, spinach, spring cabbage and spring onions together with a tablespoon of water.
  6. Stir-fry for 3-5 minutes until the vegetables have wilted.
  7. Remove from the heat and add the sesame seeds and sesame oil.
  8. Serve with cooked brown rice.
