This delicious Vegan scrambled Tofu is the perfect comfort food without the guilt, created by Masterchef Andrew Kojima!
In early 2012, Koj appeared as a contestant on BBC1's MasterChef. It was a dream come true for an enthusiastic, amateur cook. He experienced lunch service in a professional kitchen in his very first episode, but the highlights during the series were foraging with Simon Rogan in the Lake District, being praised by Michel Roux Junior, cooking for a 92 year old Thai prince in Chiang Mai and spending three days with Sergio Herman at his 3 Michelin starred restaurant Oud Sluis in the Netherlands.
After reaching the final of MasterChef, he decided to move from a career in finance to one in food and cooking. He now works as a freelance chef, food writer and cookery teacher.
A delicious side or starter of crispy baked polenta chips with a “cheesy” flavour from the addition of some nutritional yeast and tamari. The addition of a spoon of white miso softens, sweetens and adds another flavour layer to the salsa.
Umami, translated from Japanese, means "pleasant savoury taste" and very pleasant it is too. For this recipe, Umami Paste is used to flavour Soba noodles while the crunchy vegetables add colour, vitamins and minerals. The rich savoury flavour Umami flavour complements the sweetness of the maple syrup and the nuttiness of the noodles. This is very quick and easy dish perfect for a nourishing lunch or light supper.
Simple and easy to make, this satisfying, colourful and tasty dish is packed with the goodness of kale and sweet potato, the nutritionally superior cousin to the white potato (and counts as one of your 5-a-day).
