Broccoli 110g 880g
Rice, brown wholegrain (exchange for quinoa* if you’d like) 100g 800g (320g dry)
Spinach 100g 800g
Tofu, regular 125g 1000g
Balsamic vinegar 30ml 240ml
Soy sauce 30ml 240ml
Ginger 2″ piece 2 x 4″ pieces
Garlic 1/2 clove 4 cloves


Put balsamic vinegar and soy sauce together in a big bowl. Chop the tofu up into whatever size you want. Add tofu to bowl of balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. Leave it there to marinate for at least 1 hour.

Start the brown rice cooking; get it to the simmer stage.

Start the spinach and broccoli cooking, however you wish; I steam them.

Mince garlic; grate ginger.

When tofu has been marinated: heat oil in a non-stick frying pan or pot. Add ginger and garlic and stirfry them until beginning to brown.

Drain tofu, reserving marinade.

Add tofu to frying-pan and cook for around 5–7 minutes.

Add the reserved marinade to the frying pan.

Hopefully your rice, spinach, and broccoli are cooked now; add them to the frying pan.

Let simmer until marinade is reduced.
