1 Sticky Chinese Tofu & Aubergine Stir-Fry

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 hot, add the chopped aubergine with a generous pinch of salt

Cook for 6-7 min or until browned all over and cooked through

Add the tofu and cook for 4-6 min or until browned all over
