Tofu is one of those foods that you either love or hate. Eaten on its own, it tastes fairly bland, however it has the ability to take on all the aromas of other ingredients. In this recipe, it's all about the sauce. It contains a cacophony of aromatic flavours made up of sweet chilli, garlic and soy sauce with a hint of lemon. The spicy sauce sticks to the tofu, giving the dish the perfect texture and bags of flavour. In this recipe, I serve it on a bed of rice with fresh spring onions and sesame seeds!
