This is a quick and easy meal to make. It is full of flavour and the sauce combines well with the jackfruit.
Jackfruit is a giant fruit that's often used as a meat substitute. Jackfruit is a healthy source of essential nutrients, including vitamin C, potassium, and dietary fiber. It is also high in magnesium, calcium, vitamin B6 and antioxidants.
Place the cubed sweet potato in a saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Cook for 5 minutes and then remove from the heat and drain.
Cut the tofu into cubes and place them in a large dish with the cubed sweet potato and shallots.
Whisk together the tamari sauce, tomato puree, water and ginger. Pour this over the tofu and vegetables. Season and leave to marinate for at least an hour but preferably longer.
Blend the lemon, ginger, garlic, chilli, coconut milk, peanut butter and tamari in a food processor. Pour the sauce into a pan , bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes stirring frequently until it thickens. Set aside.
Put a shallot on a skewer, followed by sweet potato and then a cube of tofu and then repeat again. Continue until you use up all the tofu and vegetables on the skewers.
Place the kebabs in an ovenproof dish and brush with the marinade. Cook for 20 -25 minutes on 180C or until all the vegetables are cooked. Turn the kebabs whilst cooking.
Serve with the satay sauce together with freshly chopped coriander.
Buddha Bowl with Peanut Tofu and Tahini Turmeric Dressing
The tofu in this dish is marinated in a peanut sauce and then baked - which makes it really delicious. The buddha bowl is then made up of steamed broccoli, roasted sweet potatoes, spinach, red cabbage, avocado, and roasted red peppers - but you can add whatever veg is to hand or your favourite vegetables. I've then added a tahini and turmeric dressing which is full of flavour and also protein.
