Recipe Q&A

Q. What type of tofu do I need to use?
A. I use plain firm tofu from The Tofoo Co and it works really well. If you wanted a slightly different flavour you could try it with smoked or silken tofu but i haven't done this so can't tell you how it will turn out.

Recipe Tips

When you crumble your tofu make sure you leave some larger chunks as if it's all small pieces you're not going to get much texture. 

I don’t use any oil to cook off the veg or tofu. If you find its sticking just add a splash of water and that will fix it. 

If, like me, you cry as soon as you get anywhere near an onion then you need to know this hack! Use a food processor to chop your onions. Just peel the outer skin off, cut them into quarters or halves (depending how big your onion is), and pop them in the food processor. Make sure you do short bursts in the processor and keep checking on them or you may end up with onion paste instead of a finely chopped onion!  

Cooking with kids

This is such a simple recipe that it's really easy to cook with kids. Depending on their age they could dice the veg, crumble the tofu, or even make the whole thing!
