We all know honey is great used in sweet dishes, but it’s also delicious used in savoury dishes where its sweetness can help balance strong flavours. Serve with cooked greens for a more substantial meal.

Serves 4

600g packet firm tofu, cubed
olive or coconut oil for shallow frying
4 tbsp soy sauce (gluten-free if needed)
1½ tbsp honey
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp lightly toasted sesame seeds
cooked rice + sliced spring onions, to serve

Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Pan-fry tofu cubes until golden on all sides (approx. 8–10 minutes).

Combine soy sauce, honey, sesame oil and a few good grinds of black pepper in a small bowl and mix well.

Reduce heat to medium and pour in the soy mixture and continue to cook, while stirring, until the sauce is slightly reduced and coating the tofu. Stir through sesame seeds.

Serve tofu over rice, scattered with sliced spring onions.
