Crispy tofu represents the upper crust of veggie options. The key is to pat the cubes dry before coating them in a blend of rice flour and our seaweed and lemongrass-flavoured spices, so they develop that enticing golden exterior. They’ll go into a stir-fry of Asian greens and edamame, showered with sesame seeds and garlic chives. Plate it over delicate red quinoa, drizzle some wafu sauce over top and a way-fu you go!

  • 1 Bunch of garlic chives
  • 1 Onion (or shallot)

Pat the tofu dry with paper towel and cut into large cubes. In a medium bowl, combine the rice flour and ½ the spices. Add the tofu; toss well.

In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the onion, 1 to 2 min., until fragrant. Add the gai lan and sauté, 1 to 2 min., until beginning to wilt. Add the edamame and sauté, 1 to 2 min., until the gai lan is bright green; season with the remaining spices and S&P.
