Method

  • Start by marinating the cubed tofu with the ginger, lemon juice and tamari or liquid aminos.
  • If using fresh spinach, chop it into a chiffonade. If using frozen spinach, take it out of the freezer to thaw.
  • Put rice on to boil in water twice the depth of the rice in the pan, or two cups water to one cup rice. Meanwhile, soak the arame in a bowl of filtered water.
  • When the rice has been cooking for about 25 mins, add the seaweed.
  • If the rice is running out of water, keep adding small amounts of hot water.
  • When the rice is almost cooked add the tofu, tofu marinade, edamame beans, sweet corn, spinach, coconut milk and turmeric.
  • Finally, add the red cabbage and the rinsed and drained sunflower seeds, and serve.
