Step 1

Start by getting most of the water out of the tofu by pressing it in kitchen towel. Then cut it into 2cm cubes and marinate it for at least an hour.

Step 2

Blanch the broccoli, so it's still crunchy and then mix together with the other salad ingredients.

Step 3

Divide the rice between your bowls and top with the mixed salad. Sprinkle the seeds over the top and add the coriander.

Step 4

Drizzle any leftover marinade dressing over the top and serve with the carrot sauce.
