October 08, 2013

A mild Indonesian style dish with golden fried tofu cubes that are crispy on the surface but soft and smooth inside.

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1 pack of Clearspring Tofu
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder or alternative flour
  • 1 tbsp peanut Oil or Clearspring Sesame Oil
  • dash of Clearspring Shoyu Soya Sauce
  • 1 medium size onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2cm piece of ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 lemongrass stalk, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, seeds removed and finely chopped
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 2 portions of jasmine rice
  • A pinch of fresh coriander
  • A pinch of Clearspring Traditional Sea Salt
  • A pinch of black pepper

Method

  1. Carefully remove the tofu from its pack and drain. Cut into 6 cubes. Pat with a little arrowroot powder or other flour alternative.
  2. Lightly toast the desiccated coconut. Try not to burn. Set aside.
  3. Stir fry the tofu cubes with oil until the surface turns a golden colour.
  4. Cook the jasmine rice according to the pack instruction.
  5. Finley chop the onion, garlic, ginger, lemongrass and chilli. Blend all to a puree and add the toasted desiccated coconut.
  6. Gently cook the puree in a frying pan, stirring occasionally to avoid burning.
  7. Stir in the coconut milk and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  8. Add the fried tofu and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Season with soya sauce, and a touch of salt and pepper to taste.

I love this hot, soothing miso soup as a pick-me up at any time of the day. Simply pop the ingredients in a tea cup, top up with hot water, done! Or, bring them to work portioned up and ready to go – perfect for meal prep. You can vary this recipe indefinitely, just include something a little spicy or acidic to lift the salty miso. I like a few spoons of oats in mine to make it a little more substantial, almost like rice!

Matcha is one of my favourite foods! I love its flavour and colour as well as its subtly uplifting effect. It tastes amazing in sweets so here I've used it as I would cacao to make indulgent little brownie bites. The oats give creaminess and make the bites lighter, rice malt syrup adds a slight chewiness and miso rounds everything off beautifully.
