  • Serves 2-3

  • 15 mins

  • Very easy

  • 300g firm tofu

  • 1/2 green pepper, cut into 5cm strips

  • 3 large red chillies, finely sliced

  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 tbsp cornflour

  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed & chopped

Probably one of my favourite dishes on a Chinese menu. Take-away versions can be hit and miss, but this is such an easy dish to make it home. Fresh and crunchy, with a good kick of chilli heat. I like to eat this on it's own for a healthy snack or lunch, or with a selection of dim sum for a Chinese style banquet.


1. Mix the cornflour, salt and freshly ground pepper in a large bowl.

2. Using you hands, squeeze out the excess water from the tofu, and then cut into 2-3cm triangles or cubes. Add to the corn flour mix, and ensure each piece is well coated.

3. In a wok or large frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons of veg oil on a high heat. Add the tofu pieces and stir fry for 6-8 mins, until crispy and golden on all sides. Set aside on kitchen roll.

4. Now add the garlic, chillis and green pepper to the wok, and stir fry on high heat for 3-4 minutes, until garlic is crispy and peppers are starting to colour. Add the tofu and mix well. Serve immediately.
