  • 300g jasmine rice (or 600g cooked rice)
  • 500ml vegetable stock (vegan if needed)
  • 3 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 large onion, peeled and finely sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 400g savoy cabbage, cored and shredded
  • 1 tsp chinese five spice
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 350g silken tofu, drained
  • 2 tbsp sriracha, to serve


Step 1

If you are cooking the rice, place it in a sieve and rinse under a cold tap until the water runs clear. Tip the rice into a lidded saucepan, add 500ml hot stock and bring to the boil. Place the lid on, turn the heat down to a whisper and cook for 15 mins, then take off the heat and leave to steam with the lid on for a further 5 to 10 mins. Remove the lid, fluff up with a fork and allow to cool.

Step 2

Heat the rapeseed oil over a medium heat in a frying pan. When hot, add the onion and fry for around 8 mins until softened and browning, then add the garlic. Cook for a couple of mins, then add the shredded cabbage. Fry over a low heat, stirring every now and then for around 5 mins until wilted, then stir in the five spice, salt, sesame oil and soy sauce.

Step 3

Crumble in the tofu through clean fingers into the pan. Fry for a couple of minutes until all the ingredients are well mixed then finally, mix in the rice (I like using a spaghetti spoon so as not to break up the rice). Cook until the rice is hot and all the ingredients are well acquainted.

Step 4

Serve heaped onto plates with sriracha drizzled all over.
