  • 1 x 396g block Cauldron Authentic Tofu, drained

  • 3 tbsp cornflour

  • 2 carrots, peeled & finely sliced

  • 1/2 courgette, finely sliced

  • 100g green beans, cut into 3cm pieces

  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil

For the sauce:

  • 3 tbsp tamari soy sauce

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

  • 2cm fresh ginger, finely diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  • ¼ tsp chilli flakes

  • 3 tbsp water

  • 1 tbsp cornflour


  1. Prepare your rice according to the on-pack instructions.

  2. Drain the Authentic Tofu block and gently press it in between your hands to remove any excess moisture. Chop into bite-size chunks and pre-heat the rapeseed oil in a non-stick frying pan.

  3. Place 3 tbsp of cornflour into a small bowl and coat the tofu chunks with a thin layer. Place the tofu into the oil and fry until golden on all sides. Use a pair of chopsticks to carefully flip the chunks whilst cooking.

  4. In the meantime, combine all ingredients for the sauce into a small jug and whisk.

  5. Once the tofu cubes are golden, remove from the pan and add in your veggies (no need to clean in between!). Gently pan-fry the vegetables for about 5-10 minutes until soft, then add the tofu back into the pan and pour over the sauce. Stir with a spatula and remove from the heat whilst stirring until the sauce thickens.

  6. Serve the tofu teriyaki over your cooked rice & enjoy!
