tofu-saladFor our vegetarian friends, here is a really great meal that is full of flavor with the pistachios adding a really nice crunch. It’s a unique flavour and can be served as a main or can happily be a vegetable side dish for something like this incredible roast brisket recipe(4 people as a main meal)

What you need

600g firm tofu cubed

1 cup shelled pistachio nuts

2 tablespoons butter

1 heaped teaspoon crushed garlic

2 small red chili’s chopped (optional)

1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger

400g sugar peas

400g snow peas

4 tablespoons sweet chili sauce

Peanut oil for frying

The process

Heat about 2 tablespoons of peanut oil in a wok on maximum heat.

Stir fry batches of the tofu with pistachios until the tofu is browned. Toss them around  and have some fun with it. Remove and set aside until all the tofu is browned.

Add a little ore oil to the wok with the butter and stir fry the garlic, chili and  ginger for about 2 minutes tossing from time to time.

Add the peas and stir fry until the peas are beginning to soften but are stir crunchy.

Add back the tofu and pistachios mixture with the sweet chili sauce and toss to combine all  of the flavors, about another 2 minutes.

Transfer to a bowl and serve immediately. Check out all of the vegetarian recipes along with vegetable side dishes.
