Tyga Spices Ginger & Garlic Vegan Fish Sauce (15g) Sweet Chilli Sauce Unami Stock Sesame Seeds (Optional)
Ingredients 450g firm tofu Cut into 1cm-wide sticks 2 Shallots Finely chopped 1 Red chilli De-seeded and finely chopped 4 Spring onions Cut into half and shredded lengthways 2 Pak choi Sliced lengthways 100g Cornflour 300g Rice 2 tbsp Brown sugar Vegetable Oil for frying
Place the tofu into a mixing bowl, add cornflour and season with salt and pepper. Make sure the tofu is covered on all sides. Add enough oil into the wok/pan over a high heat, make sure the oil fully coats the bottom of the pan/ wok. Carefully place tofu pieces in batches into the pan. Cook for 5 minutes, turning each piece every minute or so until they start to turn golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper. Tip away any excess oil.
Over a low heat, add 1/2 tablespoon of oil, shallots, ginger & garlic paste and the chilli for 1-2 mins until it starts to soften.
In a jug, mix the Unami stock with 200ml of water.
Add vegan fish sauce and the stock to the pan/wok and mix together & bring to the boil.
Add the sugar and stir continuously until the sugar has dissolved.
Add the tofu and bubble vigorously for 6-8 (3-5) mins or until the sauce thickens to coat the pork/tofu and be-come glossy. Add the pak choi and turn onto a medium heat, cook for 2-3 minutes.
Stir in the sweet chilli sauce.
In a separate pan add boiling water and simmer the pak choi for 2-3 minutes. Once cooked, remove/drain and set aside for serving.
