Crispy chia tofu - Tofu coated in crispy panko crumbs, chia and sesame seeds. Served on fragrant coconut rice with stir fried asian greens and finished with a chilli lime soy sauce.
1. Place rice, coconut milk, 350ml water and 1/2 tsp salt in a saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, for 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stand, covered, for 10 minutes.

2. Finely chop chillies. Combine in a small saucepan with crushed garlic clove (1), 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 1/2 tbsp sugar and 1/4 cup water. Bring to a simmer, remove from heat and squeeze in juice from 1/2 lime. Cut remaining lime into wedges for serving.

3. Whisk 1 egg and 2 tbsp water in a bowl. Cut tofu into 1cm slices. Dip in egg wash then toss in chia crumb to coat.
