Crispy salt and pepper tofu on a bed of stir-fry broccoli and snow peas finished with a drizzle of sweet and sour sauce and topped with chia seeds.
1. Combine 1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce, 2 tbsp vinegar, 1/2 tbsp corn flour and 1/2 tbsp tomato paste in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in 3/4 cup water until combined. Increase heat to medium-high and simmer for 5-8 minutes until slightly thickened.

2. Cut broccoli into small florets. Slice corn into thirds, cut capsicum and carrots into matchsticks. Trim and halve snow peas. Slice spring onions into 2cm lengths. Crush garlic. Set aside.

3. Dice tofu. Coat with 1 tsp five spice, 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Toss in a bowl with 1/4 cup corn flour until coated. Set aside.

4. Heat large frypan over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp oil. Add vegetables to cook for 5-6 minutes until tender. Toss through 1/2 the sweet and sour sauce and season with salt and pepper. Remove and keep warm.

5. Add 1 tbsp oil to wok. Add tofu to cook for 3-5 minutes turning until golden.

6. Divide vegetables and tofu among shallow bowls. Spoon over sauce to taste and finish with chia seeds and cashews.

Notes:
Grape seed, peanut or coconut oil works well with this dish and also white pepper instead of black!
