Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Heat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Pull the leaves off the cauliflower and break it into small florets. Tumble onto the baking tray. Drizzle over 2 tsp olive oil and sprinkle with 2 tsp turmeric. Season and toss together. Roast for 25 mins.

  • 2.

    While the cauliflower is roasting, chop the tofu into 2 cm chunks. Peel and thinly slice the shallots. Peel and crush the garlic. Finely chop the tomatoes.

  • 3.

    Warm a frying pan for 1 min over a medium heat. When warm, add 2 tsp olive oil and the tofu. Fry for 5 mins till golden, stirring now and then. Lift out of the pan with a slotted spoon and pop in a bowl.

  • 4.

    Tip the shallots, garlic and tomatoes into the frying pan. Bring up to a simmer and cook for 10 mins. Stir now and then till the tomatoes have broken down.

  • 5.

    Stir in 2 tbsp tamarind and 2 tsp honey. Add the golden smoked tofu back to the pan.

  • 6.

    Simmer the tofu in the tomato sauce for 5 mins to warm through. If the cauli is cooked before the tofu is finished, turn the oven off to keep it warm.

  • 7.

    The cauliflower should be roasted and charred on the edges. Serve with the tamarind tofu, garnished with coriander leaves.
