Tofu, or bean curd, is a popular food derived from soya. It is made by curdling fresh soya milk, pressing it into a solid block and then cooling it – in much the same way that traditional dairy cheese is made by curdling and solidifying milk. The liquid (whey) is discarded, and the curds are pressed to form a cohesive bond. A staple ingredient in Thai and Chinese cookery, it can be cooked in different ways to change its texture from smooth and soft to crisp and crunchy.


  • 240g chickpeas
  • 280g tofu
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 100g sliced radish
  • 100g scallion, roughly chopped
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper


  1. In a pan or under a grill, fry or grill your tofu chunks until charred lightly on each side.
  2. Rinse your chickpeas in some water and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Combine all of the ingredients and dress with the lemon juice, olive oil and season with your salt and pepper.
