Tahini Tofu & Sweetcorn Stir Fry


This is a super simple stir fry recipe that packs in 3 servings of veggies, a plant protein punch from tofu, and a tasty kick from a mixture of honey, tahini and soy sauce (or tamari!). I loved creating this recipe, and I hope you enjoy making it too!

Recipe (Serves 2)


  • 1 tbsp of cooking oil of choice
  • 1 tsp of ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • 2 tbsp of tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp of tahini
  • 1 tbsp of miso paste
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 red onion, peeled
  • 2 cups of broccoli florets
  • 1 yellow pepper (de-seeded and sliced into 1 inch chunks)
  • 1 medium courgette (top head/stem removed, and sliced into coins, then coins halved and quartered)
  • 4 tbsp of sweetcorn
  • 200g of tofu, drained and chopped into 1 inch chunks
  • To Serve: You can serve this stir fry with your grain of choice – I love quinoa, and rice would work very well too of course, always a classic! So you’ll need 2 servings of your grain of choice.


  1. Prepare your veggies by washing and chopping them up as above in the ingredients.  Set aside.
  2. Chop up the tofu, and set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a medium pot, then add the onion and garlic. Cook for 3-4 minutes to soften the onions.
  4. Add the rest of your veggies, and fry for another 3-4 minutes.
  5. Add the ginger, honey, tahini and tamari/soy sauce, followed by the tofu chunks and sweetcorn. Stir to mix everything up, then turn the heat down to continue to cook the veg and tofu for a few minutes (aim for 7-10, but keep stirring to avoid the mix sticking to the pot).
  6. Cook your grain according to package instructions while your stir fry cooks up.
  7. Time to serve! Serve your side, pop the stir fry on top and tuck in!
