Step 3 : Prep the Ingredients

Peel and finely chop the ginger, garlic, and banana shallot. Cut the spring onion and separate the leaves of water spinach from the stems. Slice the tofu into 1cm thick pieces.

Step 2 : Make the Sauce

Bring a pot of water to a medium-high heat. Peel and roughly chop the carrots and cook until tender. Reserve some of the cooking water, and blend the carrots with mirin, sesame oil, and tamari until smooth, gradually add the reserved water.

Step 4 : Cook the Tofu

In a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat, add oil and fry the tofu, approximately 3-4 minutes per side, and set aside. In the same pan, sauté half of the garlic and ginger for a minute. Return the tofu, add soy sauce, honey, and water with a vegetable cube. Season with pepper and simmer for 3-5 minutes until sauce thickens.

Step 6 : Serve and Enjoy!

Spread the carrot puree on the plates first. Next, add a portion of rice, top with the honey-glazed tofu, and the stir-fried spinach. Finish by sprinkling the dish with the remaining toasted sesame seeds and spring onions.
