Another recipe if you are a busy, vegetarian and only have 5 min to spare:

Smoky Tofu & Coconut Salad

For one portion

2 cubes fried tofu, sliced
1cm red onion, thin slices
1 teaspoon coriander leaves
5cm carrot, grated
5cm cucumber, thin slices
1 tablespoon grated coconut
1 tablespoon peanuts
1 tablespoon coconut milk
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
salt to taste

First make the dressing: toast grated coconut and peanuts in a pan (so without fat, just wait that they turn brown). Pound them together using a pestle and mortar (or bash with a rolling pin), until the peanuts are tiny, but not reduced to powder. Season with coconut milk, vinegar, it should taste smoky, rich, sour and salty.

Quickly toast the tofu for few seconds in a pan, then add it to the dressing.

Serve on a bed of grated carrot, cucumber then sprinkle with red onions and coriander leaves
