Ingredients
  • 280g firm tofu
  • 1tbsp Thai 7 spice
  • ½tsp ground turmeric
  • ½tsp black pepper
  • 1tbsp plant-based yogurt alternative
  • 4tbsp cornflour
  • Low-fat cooking oil spray
  • Juice 1 lime
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 3tbsp smooth peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1tbsp maple syrup
  • 1tsp soy sauce
  • ½tbsp vegan Thai red curry paste
  • 5g coriander leaves, to garnish
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Press the tofu between 2 clean tea towels on a plate with a weight on top. Leave for 10-15 mins to drain off any liquid.

  • Carefully rip the tofu into equal bite-sized nuggets. Put in a mixing bowl, add the 7 spice, turmeric and pepper. Toss to coat, add the yogurt and fold to coat. Add 1tbsp of the cornflour, fold again to coat. Repeat, adding 1tbsp at a time.

  • Transfer the nuggets to the tray. Spritz with 4 sprays of the oil, bake for 25 mins, turning them halfway through – spritz with more oil if too dry.

  • Meanwhile, make the satay sauce. Put the lime juice and the remaining ingredients (except for the coriander) into a blender with 4tbsp water. Blitz to make a creamy sauce.

  • Transfer the nuggets to a dish, garnishwith coriander; serve with the satay sauce.
