Peel and finely dice the brown onion[s]

Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

2 2433 - Spiced Black Pepper Tofu With Rice

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once softened, add the chopped ginger and garlic and cook for 2 min further

 

3 2433 - Spiced Black Pepper Tofu With Rice

Meanwhile, add the basmati rice and 300ml [600ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-12 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving

Place your hand flat on the tofu and slice in half as if you were cutting a burger bun, so you are left with 2 [4] thinner pieces and pat them very dry with kitchen paper

7 2433 - Spiced Black Pepper Tofu With Rice

Heat a separate large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the tofu and cook on both sides for 2-3 min or until crispy

Once crispy, cut the tofu into bite sized pieces

Add the tofu pieces to the pan with the black pepper sauce

Return the pan to a medium heat for 2 min until the sauce is piping hot - this is your spiced black pepper tofu
