Crisp Tofu Cooked in Tomato-Pepper Sauce Recipe

This tofu recipe from Luke Nguyen gets a good kick from the pepper though you can dial up the chilli component if you like it extra spicy. Serve with steamed rice (and steamed greens if you’re feeling healthy). It takes around 30 minutes from start to finish and serves 4. You will need:

  • 200 ml (7 fl oz) vegetable oil
  • 500 g (1 lb 2 oz) silken tofu, drained and cut into 3 cm (1¼ inch) cubes
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp minced red Asian shallots
  • 1 bird’s eye chilli, finely sliced
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • ½ tspsea salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 3 spring onions (scallions), cut into 5 cm (2 inch) lengths
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 coriander (cilantro) sprigs, to garnish
