Roasted peanut tofu

Curries love tofu, especially when the tofu is soft and springy – it can take on new flavours more quickly and easily, adding a creamy subtle sweetness to the dish. This toasted peanut recipe is really quick to pull together and a great base for adding other vegetables and proteins too. *For more recipes from […]

Tofu katsu burger

This is everything I love inside a burger – the crispy tofu is incredible! Huge crunches when you eat this. You don’t have to deep-fry the tofu; baking works just as well.

Packed with flavour, so so easy, and possibly even better […]

Now, pilau might sound humdrum, but with […]

Sprout Nasi Goreng (c) David Loftus

Sprout Nasi Goreng

Sometimes, all you really want is something with the sort of filthy and delicious taste that I used to think only a good takeaway could provide – until I accidentally recreated it while writing this recipe. It’s fried rice, but not as you know it: smothered in unami-ific sauces and topped with shredded, marinated sprouts […]
