Back in January I posted a recipe for a rather delectable sesame tofu and peanut butter dish that I was LOVING.
After a little break I decided to make it again last night, but I kicked it up a notch and I just had to share the result because it was even better than the last one! You know when you eat something and you’re still thinking about it the next day and excitedly planning your next opportunity to make it? (and actually deliberating whether it’d be weird to make it at 8am?) 🙂
So just a brief recap: this dish is tofu coated with sesame seeds and breadcrumbs and gently fried until golden brown, and the dressing is peanut butter, lime (or lemon) juice, soy sauce and freshly grated ginger (click here for my original recipe).
See those pretty green flakes? That’s kale, blitzed in the blender and popped in the frying pan with the tofu. I’ve only experimented with kale a couple of times and never been particularly taken with the result, but THIS worked (which is fortunate as I still have 700g of kale to use up!).
I also added extra dollops of sesame seed/breadcrumb mixture to the frying pan and they gave the dish a delicious crunch.
To add even more nutritious goodness I tossed some carrots, onion, cherry tomatoes and pepper in garlic olive oil, seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper and roasted them in the oven for about 20 mins at 200C.
All of this combined produced the little plate of heaven you see before you 🙂 I should’ve taken more care photographing it but I was just too ready to eat it!
I hope you guys enjoy; give it a go and let me know what you think!
