Tofu halloumi style

Lunch / Serves four / 10 minutes + minimum 1 hour waiting time


1 block of tofu (250 g) - salt - 2 limes, squeezed - freshly ground pepper - ½ teaspoon Vadouvan spice or another dry curry spice mix - fresh parsley, finely chopped


1. Wrap the block of tofu in a tea towel and put on a plate. Put five plates on top and leave the tofu to drain for at least an hour, but preferably longer.

2. Unwrap the tofu from the tea towel. Stand the block on its narrow side and cut it into four large, thin slices. Sprinkle generously with salt.

3. Preheat a griddle plate, grill pan or table-top grill.

4. Cook the tofu slices on both sides until grill marks appear.

5. Pour the lime juice into a deep plate. Remove the tofu slices from the pan and immerse in the lime juice.

6. Put the tofu slices on a plate and sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and Vadouvan or other dried curry spices (if desired).

7. Finish off with some parsley.

Tofu halloumi style should be eaten lukewarm. Try it with roasted vegetables, a salad or on bread spread with hummus.
