  • Rice vinegar, 2 tbsp(s)
  • Tofu, extra firm, 1½ x 1-inch thick slice(s)
  • Wasabi, ¼ teaspoon
  • Extra virgin olive oil, 1 tsp(s)
  • Instant brown rice, cooked, ⅔ cup(s)
  • Red cabbage, ¾ cup(s), shredded
  • Carrots, ½ medium, peeled, grated

  • Green onion, 1 medium, thinly sliced

Method

Combine 2 teaspoons of soy sauce and 2 teaspoons of rice vinegar in a shallow dish. Cut each piece of tofu in half lengthways. Add to the soy mixture, turn to coat.

Combine the remaining soy, rice vinegar, wasabi, olive oil and 2 teaspoons of water in a screw top jar. Secure the lid and shake to combine. Set dressing aside.

Warm the rice according to the packet instructions. Transfer the rice to a bowl. Add the cabbage, carrot, snow peas, green onion, bell pepper and cilantro. Toss to combine.
 
Heat a small frying pan over medium-high heat. Remove the tofu from the marinade, place onto a plate. Sprinkle over the cornflour, turn to coat. Add to the hot frying pan, cook for 1 to 2 minutes each side, until golden. Add to the rice salad. Drizzle over the dressing, toss gently to combine and serve.
 
TIP: This salad can also be served at room temperature. Simply cook the tofu ahead of time, prepare the rice salad and the dressing, and combine just before serving.
