For the marinated tofu

For the stir fried rice


  1. For the marinated tofu, combine all the marinade ingredients, except the vegetable oil, in a bowl and mix well. Add the tofu, coat in the mixture and allow to marinate for 5-10 minutes, or longer if possible.

  2. Heat a wok over a medium heat. Remove the tofu from the marinade, setting the marinade aside. Fry the tofu for 5-10 minutes until golden-brown all over. Strain the marinade to remove any small pieces of tofu.

  3. For the rice, heat the oil in a pan and fry the onions and garlic for 2-3 minutes until softened, then add the pepper and fry until the tofu for 2 minutes. Add the spinach, rice and reserved marinade and heat through for a further 3-4 minutes.

  4. Serve the rice with the marinated tofu on top.

Recipe Tips

Take care to squeeze out any excess water from the tofu to get the maximum flavour from the marinade.
