Chef Tips

Preparation

Step1

First make the pickled radishes by slicing them finely along with the herb of choice and add to a glass along with a pinch of salt and cover with the apple cider vinegar or vinegar of choice. Give it a mix and leave it to sit while you make the rest of your bowl.

Step 2

Slice the pepper into long strips. Heat up a griddle pan or non-stick frying pan on high heat and once hot, fry the peppers on booths with no oil until they starts to char around the edges, this will take around 5-7 mins. Remove from the heat and set aside

Step 3

Slice the tofu into 4 pieces and pat dry. Add to the same hot pan. Sear or fry on both sides on high heat until it goes lightly golden brown. Mix together the tamari, maple syrup and vinegar and add to the tofu. Move the tofu around to mop up the sauce. Turn off the heat and as the sauce starts to cool it will thicken and glaze the tofu. Remove from the pan and set aside. Keep the pan hot and add the seeds. Cook the seeds while stirring regularly until the sesame seeds start to pop, this should take about 4-5 mins. Remove from the pan.

Step 4

Drain and rinse the cooked beans. Cut the avocado in half, remove the stone, spoon out the flesh and slice into long stips. Quarter the cherry tomatoes.

Step 5

To assemble the bowl, divide the leaves between the 2 bowls, carefully layer in the tofu, red pepper, butter beans, slices of avocado, cherry tomatoes, remove the radishes from the vinegar and divide between the bowls, sprinkle the seeds on top and enjoy!
