Serves 4

Serves 4

See recipe for Serves 2 here

  • 250g firm tofu, cut into 1cm-thick strips  
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil 
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (see tip) 
  • 300g Chinese cabbage (wombok), shredded 
  • 1 large carrot, peeled, coarsely shredded 
  • 150g snow peas, thinly sliced 
  • 4 green shallots, cut into thin strips 
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh coriander 
  • ½ cup roasted unsalted peanuts, coarsely chopped 

Dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons salt-reduced soy sauce  
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar  
  • 1 tablespoon honey 
  • 3 teaspoons sesame oil 
  1. Place tofu on a paper towel-lined tray and pat with extra paper towel to absorb excess moisture. 
  2. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add tofu and cook for about 8 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden. Transfer to a large plate. Cool. 
  3. To make dressing, whisk all dressing ingredients in a small bowl to combine. 
  4. Combine tofu with remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Toss well. Add dressing. Toss again to lightly coat salad with dressing.  

Tips

  • You’ll need to cook 2/3 cup of raw brown rice to make 2 cups cooked rice. 
  • Recipe can be made several hours ahead. Keep in containers in the fridge. Perfect for packed lunches.  
  • If preferred, replace tofu with 300g shredded skinless cooked chicken and skip steps 1 and 2.
