Sweet Sambal-Hoisin Tofu and Jasmine Rice

Sweet Sambal-Hoisin Tofu and Jasmine Rice

with Pepper and Green Beans

A popular condiment in many Asian countries, sambal paste's vibrant heat is perfect for boosting flavour in our Asian style dishes. This paste contains herbs and spices such as red chillies, lemongrass and tamarind, making it the perfect flavour driver for both veggie and meat dishes alike.

Thick and fragrant, hoisin sauce is widely used in Chinese cuisine. This flavourful sauce contains Chinese Five Spice, rice vinegar and red miso which gives it its delicious sweet-umami flavour. Hoisin sauce is a perfect match for rice and noodle dishes or even as a flavour driver in burgers or bao buns.

Pour the water for the rice (see pantry for amount) into a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.

Stir in the rice and 0.25 tsp salt and bring to the boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium and cover with the lid.

Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).


Meanwhile, halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.

Trim the green beans, then cut into thirds. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Drain the tofu and thoroughly pat dry with kitchen paper. Tear into 3cm chunks. Add the tofu to a medium bowl with the cornflour. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat.


Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on high heat.

Once hot, fry the tofu until slightly crispy, 8-10 mins. Turn frequently to ensure it doesn't burn. 

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, sambal paste (add less if you'd prefer things milder), hoisin sauce, honey and water for the sauce (see pantry for amount). Set your sticky sauce aside. TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min.


Once the tofu is crispy, transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper. 

Return the (now empty) pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.

Once hot, add the sliced pepper and green beans. Stir-fry until starting to soften, 3-4 mins. Add the garlic and fry for 30 secs more.


Pour the sticky sauce into the veg pan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium, then simmer until the sauce has thickened, 3-4 mins. 

Once the sauce has thickened, add the crispy tofu back into the pan and mix to coat, 1 min. Add a splash of water if the sauce is a little too thick.


When ready, fluff up the rice using a fork and share between your bowls.

Top with your sambal-hoisin tofu and veg, spooning over all the sauce from the pan.
