How to make it

  • 1. soak the rice in cold water for about 15/20 mins
  • 2. in the meantime prepare the salad. soak the wakame seaweed in a bit of filtered water. wash the veg very well, grate both the courgettes and carrots in a large bowl. cut the peppers in half, remove the seeds and cut in strips, then in half and add to the bowl. peel the ginger and grate it into the bowl. add the sesame seeds and set aside
  • 3. put together the tofu marinade by combining soya sauce, mirin, agave syrup and water
  • 4. go back to the rice and wash with your hands in the pan it’s been soaking in, remove the water when it goes white and repeat this step 4 times until the water is almost clear
  • 5. then add double the amount of rice in filtered water, I was cooking for two so I did 250g of rice to 500ml of water, you bring it to a boil and then lower the flame to the lowest possible and cook for a further 10 minutes with the lid on. then you remove it form the cooker and let it steam in the pan until you are ready to serve it. this will keep it warm and will finish off the cooking process
  • 6. cut the tofu in 8 pieces and coat it in plain flour (cornflour is also very good)
  • 7. heat up enough oil in a frying pan so that the whole bottom of it is covered (no need to use masses, just enough)
  • 8. add the tofu and fry on each side until browned-ish then remove from the pan and rest on a plate
  • 9. remove the oil from the pan and add the marinade, bring to a boil and then add the tofu
  • 10. cook it until the sauce has thickened up and tofu is nice and shiny (you will need to turn the tofu halfway through to make sure both sides get coated with the sauce)
  • 11. make the sauce for the salad by adding miso and vinegar at first. stir very well to dissolve all lumps with a small whisk and then add just enough water to make it more liquid, then pour it on the salad.
  • 12. serve the rice and sprinkle with some black sesame seeds and lay the tofu next to it
  • 13. garnish with tomatoes and serve the salad on its side
