How many more times do I need to hear about vegans and protein?

This is how we do it, with a classic, plant-based meal.

It has rice, lentils, chickpeas, salt-and-pepper tofu, some random salad items (chopped tomato, onion and carrot in this case) with a sprinkling of sunflower and pumpkin seeds.

There’s about 50g of protein on this two-person sharing plate. That’s about half your daily requirement, no effort needed.

Here’s a summary, in hashtags: #vegan #plantbased #food #dairyfree #crueltyfree #protein #tasty

    • Hi – there’s no real magic involved here and only minimal cooking required:
      1. Toast some seeds (pumpkin, sunflower) in a dry frying pan for a couple of minutes so they get a little colour and you can see them just starting to go brown. Take out of pan and put to one side.
      2. Warm up a tin of chickpeas (in a saucepan or in the microwave, either is fine) for 60 seconds, and then warm up a tin of precooked lentils. If you want to do all that soak-them-overnight stuff with dry lentils then be my guest, but for me a tin is fine. Similarly if you want to use one of those packs of microwaveable rice, that’s fine too.
      3. Cut your brick of tofu into cubes, coat with salt, pepper and corn flour (corn starch) and then fry in a little oil for 5-10 minutes. Keep the heat up high, turn the cubes frequently, until crispy on all sides.
      4. Arrange everything in a large bowl or platter for sharing. Add your salad items like sliced tomatoes and cucumber, grated carrots, spring onions, radishes etc just before serving.
      Experiment and enjoy!
