15g spring onion, fresh                                  

6 slices (12g total) pickled ginger              

10g carrot, peeled                                                                                                                                                           

5g red chilli, fresh                                                                            

5g mint , fresh, leaves only                                                                                                                                         

2 tablespoons (40ml total) Tamari soy sauce                                                                                                                  

Drain the tofu and slice into 8. This is the hardest part of the recipe because the tofu is indeed silken.

Warm gently in a non stick frying pan, you won’t need oil, silken tofu is quite wet.

Shave the carrot and cucumber with a peeler and divide into 8.

Slice the red chilli, mint and the spring onion finely.

Plate the slices of tofu, drizzle with a teaspoon of tamari per slice.

Finally garnish with carrot, spring onion, pickled ginger, chilli and mint.
