Sesame crusted tofu and garlic greens

After time away it’s lovely to have a couple of days to relax before heading back to work on Monday. I’ve spent my Saturday relaxing with my cats and getting lunches ready for work and for eating tonight with a glass of wine. 

I’m currently tucking into an incredibly simple, protein packed and tasty dish with subtle yet distinctive flavours. 

I start by preparing tofu. I’m using Cauldron Tofu and chop into approximate squares. Grill with sesame oil for approximately 10 minutes before flipping the squares over and then sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds before grilling for a further 10 minutes. This creates a toastoy sesame crust on your tofu. Incredibly delicious and full of healthy oils. 

To accompany this excellent tofu I’m cooking garlic greens. Rolling with the sesame theme warm half a teaspoon of sesane oil in a pan and then add batons of chopped orange pepper, courgette and baby pak choi. Stir through minced garlic (as much as you like – I’ve used a whole teaspoon as I am a garlic fiend!) Then add a few drops of gluten free tamari. Continue to cook for 10 – 15 minutes and serve with the tofu. I’ve also accompanied the dish with fresh, steamed edamame and sea salt. Yay for Saturday night dinner time.
