Satay Tofu with Stir Fried Broccolini

This recipe is originally from Mum, who has fond memories of eating satay chicken skewers with her Dad and Grandad from the street carts in Singapore.

Growing up a vegetarian, I have only ever had this marinade with tofu, which is one of my all time favourites. It is so easy to make and tastes fantastic.

The broccoli recipe is also from Mum and is how Grandma used to make it.

What is in it
Garlic, grated or minced
Coriander seeds, ground
Soy sauce
Kecap manis
Lemon juice
Minced onion (although I never bother with this)

Baby bok choy
Garlic, thinly sliced

How to make it
Chop the tofu into whatever size / shape you like... slices, battens, cubes etc.
Place the chopped tofu in a water tight container.
Add the garlic, ground coriander, kecap manis and soy sauce.
Put the lid on the container and combine well by giving it a shake, rattle and roll...
Leave to marinate for an amount of time, 1/2 an hour or overnight if you wish. Periodically shaking to mix.

For the greens, heat a little olive oil in a wok or frypan.
Add the sliced garlic and veggies and quickly stir fry.

You could eat these as sides, have by themselves or serve with rice.
The tofu is also great with some spicy peanut sauce.

Mm mmm!
