I think you will love this recipe – for me it’s one of the best ways to eat tofu.

Crispy, a little spicy and then coated in nutty sesame seeds and desiccated coconut.

The crunchy salad/slaw is simple yet absolutely delicious – just shredded cabbage, carrots, spring onions. All tossed in a spicy and creamy dressing then lots of toasted peanuts stirred in.

I recommend topping everything with lots of fresh herbs – mint, coriander are the best.

I love to eat this for lunch as its light and flavour packed, you could make it more substantial by adding some rice or noodles.

I hope you love this as much as me!

Love, Niki xxx
