Tofu & Marinade

  • 400 g firm tofu drained
  • 3 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 inch fresh, root ginger grated
  • 1 tsbp pure Maple syrup

Sprialised Veggies

  • Cut the tofu into small pieces, place in a bowl with the marinade ingredients and leave to marinate for at least 15 minutes but preferably a few hours or overnight in the fridge.
  • After marinating, place the tofu pieces into a frying pan and fry gently for about 10 minutes until heated through and starting to crisp on the outside.


  • Place all the dressing ingredients into a bowl and blend together using a stick blender, until smooth.  Add more water if desired for a thinner dressing consistency.
