How tasty does this look? It is both vegan & vegetarian friendly too! Tofu is a great plant-based protein source as its one of the few plant-based products that is a complete protein source. Tofu comes in a vairty of textures but firm tofu works best in this recipe as it soaks up all the flavours of the marinade and holds its shape when cooked.
Firm tofu, cubed
1 orange, juiced
1 1⅓ Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp fresh ginger, minced (optional)
1 tsp corn flour
Cooking oil, for frying
2 cups of low FODMAP Asian greens
Sesame seeds and a dash of sesame oil, to garnish
Mix the orange juice, soy sauce, sugar and ginger in a container and add the cubed tofu. Place in the fridge to marinate for at least 2 hours (but not more than 12 hours).
When you’re ready to cook the tofu, remove it from the marinade using a slotted spoon.
Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok over high heat and add the tofu cubes. Fry until golden brown.
Add the corn flour to the reserved marinade liquid and stir it with a fork to dissolve the corn flour. Add it to the frying pan or wok, and continue cooking until the marinade creates a sauce. Add the greens and cook over high heat, stirring, until the greens are wilted.
Serve with rice and garnish with some sesame seeds (approximately 1 tsp per bowl) and a few drops of sesame oil for extra flavour.
