- Finely chop the garlic and peel and chop the ginger. Trim the sweetcorn and slice in half lengthways, thinly slice the red pepper, peel the carrots and slice into thin matchsticks. Drain and rinse the tofu, cut into 2cm cubes.
- To make the chilli marinade; in a bowl mix together the garlic, ginger, chilli paste, tamari and maple syrup.
- Heat a medium-sized pan on a medium heat with 1 tbsp oil and fry the tofu for 5 mins, then add the marinade and fry for a further 5 mins. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
