  • 420 ml water
  • 2 tsp yellow curry powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp ginger minced or grated

For the sauce

  • 2 tbsp sriracha sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp tamari sauce
  • 2 tsp coconut sugar

For the tofu

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 450 g firm tofu
  • sea salt & black pepper

For the Vegetables

  • 450 g asparagus cut into 1”(2.5cm) pieces
  • 4 garlic cloves roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp lemongrass minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger minced or grated
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 80 g green peas defrosted in water, drained
  • juice of a lime
  • 4 tbsp cilantro chopped
  • 4 tbsp mint chopped
  • 40 g coconut flakes toasted


What you need to do

  • Place all the ingredients for the coconut rice into a large pot. Bring to a simmer, cover with a lid and cook for 20 minutes. Then, set the pot aside, with the lid on, until ready to serve.
  • Place all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl, whisk to combine and set aside.
  • Heat one tablespoon of coconut oil in a large skillet and place it over medium-high heat. Add the tofu and season with salt and pepper. Sear the tofu for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown, then set aside.
  • Add the remaining coconut oil and sauté the asparagus in the same skillet for a minute. Add the garlic, lemongrass, and ginger, stirring for 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Now add the green onions and a tablespoon of water, scraping the pan to release any stuck pieces and cooking for another minute.
  • Add the seared tofu back into the skillet along with the sauce, green peas and lime juice and stir to combine.
  • To serve, divide the rice equally into bowls, adding a portion of the sautéed tofu and vegetables. Garnish with chopped mint, cilantro and toasted coconut flakes.
