Ingredients (Serves 4)

400gms tofu
3 tbsp corn flour or tapioca starch
1 tsp Cajun
1 tbsp tamari
1 tsp sesame oil
1 head of iceberg or cos lettuce (Taco shape)
1 red capsicum
1 carrot
1/4 red cabbage
1 Spring onion
1 tbsp Sesame seeds
1 tsp Chili flakes
1 Lemon
Peanuts for sprinkling

Peanut Sauce
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp tamari
1 tsp chili flakes
1 tsp fresh ginger
1 tsp minced garlic

Method:

1) Drain tofu and cut into 1cm x 1cm cubes. Pat dry and place into the tapioca starch or cornflour and Cajun.
2) Combine and whisk all of the sauce ingredients together.
3) Heat the sesame oil in a pan and fry the tofu.
4) While the tofu is cooking, thinly slice, the red pepper, cabbage, carrot, and green onion. I like to use a julienne peeler for my carrots.
5) Once the tofu has ‘sealed’ pour over the 1 tbsp of tamari and let simmer.
6) Begin to construct your lettuce cups by placing a little bit of each prepared ingredient into each cup.
7) Sprinkle over the sesame and chili flakes, drizzle over the satay sauce, and finished off with a dash of lemon. YUM
