{ INGREDIENTS }

250 grams firm tofu (preferably organic)

2 tbsp sesame oil

1/4 cup gluten free soy sauce (or tamari)

1 knob ginger, finely grated

Juice of half a lime

2 tbsp sesame seeds (black or white)

1 bunch Asian greens (eg. Bok Choy, Warregal greens, baby spinach)

1 1/2 cups brown rice

400 grams sweet potato, cut into 1 cm x 4 cm strips

TO SERVE:

Bean sprouts

Coriander

{ METHOD }

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Place sweet potato in baking tray and coat with Extra virgin olive oil or rice bran oil and place in oven for 45 minutes.

Place the brown rice into a medium saucepan with about 4 cups of water and bring to the boil. Once boiling, turn down to a medium heat and simmer until tender.

Meanwhile, chop the tofu into 1cmx1cm cubes and place in a glass dish. Add the soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice and ginger and stir to combine.

Once the sweet potato has been in the oven for about 30 minutes, place the tofu into a frypan and fry on a medium-high heat. When the sauce begins to thicken, add the greens and saute for 5 minutes.

To serve, place brown rice in each bowl and top with tofu, sweet potato, greens, coriander, bean sprouts and sesame seeds.

Bengal Tiger Lentil Curry

{ A CLASSIC NORTH INDIAN LENTIL DISH, THIS CAN BE DRAMATIC LOOKING, AS THE YELLOW LENTILS STAND OUT FROM THE SMALLER BLACK PULSES. MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT IS LUSCIOUS AND DELICIOUS. ONCE THE LENTILS SOFTEN, THE MORE YOU STIR THEM THE CREAMIER THEY BECOME. LENTILS AND BUTTER GO REALLY WELL TOGETHER, SO I DO RECOMMEND YOU ADD A LITTLE BUTTER AT THE END BEFORE SERVING. THIS IS GREAT WITH RICE OR INDIAN BREADS. }
