Want a tasty and cheap fake-away for the weekend? Then look no further!


Sticky soy and garlic tofu (with mixed vegetable rice).


Takeaways are often unhealthy and rather expensive, so why not make your own alternative, which is better for your waste line and also for your pockets.


Tofu is an excellent vessel to hold all of your flavour in your dish, and when cooked correctly has a great bitey texture. It works great as a replacement for meat, as the texture allows your mouth to believe its almost eating a piece of chicken.


You could pair this tofu with many things, including fried rice, mixed vegetables or noodles, whichever may happen to be your favourite takeaway treat.
