Categories     Dinner, Side dish, Supper

Total Time 35 minutes

Prep Time 15 minutes

Cook Time 20 minutes

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 10

396g pack firm tofu
2 tbsp cornflour
1 tsp Sichuan or black peppercorns (or a mixture of the two), ground to a powder
2 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil
2 red peppers , sliced
¼ broccoli head, cut into very small florets
100g beansprouts
2 tsp low-salt soy sauce
sesame oil , for drizzling
handful of coriander , leaves picked

Steps:

  • Drain the tofu, wrap loosely in kitchen paper and put on a plate. Rest a chopping board on top. If you’re using a light chopping board, weigh it down with a couple of cans – a heavier chopping board will be sufficient on its own. Leave for 10-20 mins until the cloth feels wet from the excess liquid. Pressing the tofu like this helps to give it a firmer texture once cooked.
  • Cut the tofu in half down the centre like a book. Cut each piece into four triangles, as you would a piece of toast, then in half again to give you 16 pieces in total. Mix the cornflour, ground pepper and 1 tsp flaky sea salt on a plate. Gently turn each piece of tofu in the cornflour mix to coat.
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok. Stir-fry the peppers and broccoli for a few minutes, to soften a little. Add the beansprouts and soy sauce. Cook for another 1-2 mins, making sure the veg still has a nice crunch. Drizzle with a little sesame oil.
  • Heat the remaining sunflower oil in a large non-stick frying pan and fry the coated tofu for 5 mins on each side until crisp. Serve on top of the vegetables, scattered with the coriander.
