  • 60 60 g gluten-free wild rice
  • 175 175 ml water
  • 140 140 g firm tofu
  • 0.375 0.375 tsp tumeric

Method

Method
  1. Place the tofu on a kitchen towel to soak up excess water for 5-10 minutes.
  2. To cook the wild rice, boil the rice and water in a pan on low heat for around 40 minutes until the rice grains are soft and cooked.
  3. While the rice is cooking, chop the tofu in small cubes and place in a separate pan on low heat so that they become slightly brown. Add the turmeric and soy sauce to the tofu after 5-10 minutes, sprinkling over all the tofu pieces, and turn the tofu so that all the sides become brown, careful not to break them.
  4. You can start the vegetable stir-fry while the tofu is still cooking. Place the coconut oil and onion slices in a large pan and let this cook on low heat for a few minutes before adding the chopped or grated garlic.
  5. Once cooked, add the peppers and broccoli and stir. Let this cook for 7-10 minutes before adding the cooked rice. You can now stir in the soy sauce and add the tofu.
  6. Serve with a slice of lime and a sprinkle of coriander and black pepper.

Tip:

Soaking the rice in water for an hour will reduce the cooking time for the rice.
