This is one of my favourite lunches, and if you’ve got leftovers in your fridge then it’s one of the quickest, too. I generally have some cooked brown rice or quinoa, and a slab or two of tofu hidden around somewhere. It really is only limited by your imagination, but I tend to put it together like a fried rice, only without the frying! Pop some frozen peas and carrots in with your rice as you reheat it (sometimes I even use the rice cold, like a salad), some chopped mushrooms, some cucumber and capsicum – whatever you like! Then grill a piece of marinated tofu, chop it up and add to the bowl. Shake over a little soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce, and Serve sprinkled with some chopped green onion, coriander, and sesame seeds if you have any. Bonus points for toasting them! It’s also pretty good packed in advance and taken in a lunch box.
When I was a busy newspaper editor I loved to get a little packet of instant rice, and one of microwaveable steamed veggies, and put all that together with some cold chopped marinated tofu. I kept soy sauce and sweet chilli at work and voila – a non-boring hot lunch! Lord knows, I needed that. Office lunches can get depressing.
