👩🍳Cook Time: 25 mins
1 cup brown rice , uncooked
10 oz firm tofu
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 cloves garlic
1 small red onion, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped into matchsticks
1/4 medium red cabbage, chopped
5 oz snow peas
1 tsp garlic granules
2 tbsp tamari
2 tbsp rice vinegar
sesame seeds, to serve
2 tbsp tamari
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp almond butter

1Cook the brown rice according to packaging instructions. This usually takes around 25 minutes.
2Combine the sauce ingredients (tamari, date syrup, almond butter and plant milk) in a bowl. Add the tofu and set aside for 5-10 minutes.
3Heat the sesame oil in a wok or frying pan over a medium-high head. Add the tofu and cook for 5-6 minutes, until golden brown on all sides. Remove from heat and set aside.
4Add the onion and the garlic to the same frying pan and cook on a medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes, until translucent. Then, add the carrots, cabbage and snow peas with around a quarter cup water, garlic powder, tamari and rice vinegar. Cook for a further 5 minutes, until the vegetables have softened.
5At the last minute, stir in the cooked brown rice and the tofu. Serve immediately, or store in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-4 days.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
