    Why should your recipe win?
    It's healthy, full of protein and fibre from the tofu and rice. Lots of vegetables make it a healthy and filling packed lunch.

    • Total time: 20 minutes prep + 20 minutes cooking

    Serves: 4


    • 1 cup brown basmati rice - steamed
      1 bunch spring onions
      1 red, green & yellow sweet pepper, diced
      1 cup sweetcorn (tinned, frozen or fresh)
      1 cup edamame beans (frozen)
      1 block firm white tofu, diced
      1 tsp groundnut oil
      1 clove garlic crushed
      Thumb sized piece of ginger, grated
      1 red chilli (or more, to taste) finely chopped
      1 dsp soy sauce


    1. Cook the brown rice in boiling water, so it absorbs completely. Season with 1tsp of salt if liked. Set aside. Heat groundnut oil up in a large pan, add crushed garlic, grated ginger and finely diced chilli until they start to sizzle Add vegetables and cook briefly (no longer than 5 minutes) Add cooked rice and tofu, stir through soy sauce to season, Keep stirring until all is hot through, garnish with chopped coriander (if liked)
