    Tofu Kimchi Stir-Fry

    This fusion of Korean and Japanese flavours is jumpy with attention grabbers: fiery kimchi, nutty soba, and crispy veggies. And the duo of seared tofu and edamame offers up plenty of plant-based protein to give the dish staying power. If serving leftovers, simply reheat the tofu mixture and rinse the cooked soba under hot water until soft again.

    Tip

    Taking the time to squeeze out some of the excess liquid from the tofu means better browning and less sticking in the pan.
