Method

Step 1

Preparation: Boil the kettle. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Cashew nuts: Place a pan on medium-high heat and dry toast for 3-4 minutes, shaking the pan to make sure it doesn’t burn.

Step 3

Cashew courgette salad: Cashew courgette salad: Mix together the cashew butter, apple cider vinegar, chilli (if you like a little spice) and enough boiling water to loosen (6 tbsp for 4; 3 tbsp for 2) and create a thick pouring consistency. You may have to loosen with a little more water if the sauce has been standing for a while. Season with salt and pepper, then mix HALF the sauce through the courgette ribbons.

Step 4

Tenderstem & tofu: Season the tofu with salt and pepper to taste. Place a pan on medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil and when hot, add the tofu. Cook for 3-4 minutes a side until golden, then remove and set aside. Using the same pan, add the tenderstem broccoli and cook for 3-4 minutes until cooked, but with a slight bite. Season to taste.

Step 5

Serve the cashew courgette salad topped with the tenderstem, tofu and toasted cashew nuts. Serve the REST of the sauce on the side.
