Malaysian Tofu & Sweet Chilli Pumpkin Salad

Malaysian Tofu & Sweet Chilli Pumpkin Salad

with Ginger Dressing & Peanuts

There’s a reason they call it "dressing" – salad would be naked without it! This one uses a clever technique of pouring hot oil over grated ginger and garlic – the oil cooks the aromatic ingredients and creates a unique mixture that you’ll want to drizzle on everything.

Baking Tray
Medium Non-Stick Pan



Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. In a medium bowl, combine the peeled & chopped pumpkin, sweet chilli sauce, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread out over an oven tray lined with baking paper. Roast until tender and lightly caramelised, 20-25 minutes.

Get prepped

While the pumpkin is roasting, finely grate the ginger. Finely grate the garlic (see ingredients list), or use a garlic press. Finely chop the long red chilli (see ingredients list), if using. Zest the lime (see ingredients list) to get a pinch, then cut in half. In a medium heatproof bowl, combine the ginger, garlic, chilli (if using) and lime zest. Set aside. Cut the Malaysian tofu into 2cm squares. Thinly slice the cucumber into half-moons. Thinly slice the pear (see ingredients list). Pick and thinly slice the mint leaves (reserve a few leaves for garnish).

Make the ginger dressing

Place a medium frying pan over a high heat and add the sesame oil. Heat until just smoking, 30 seconds, then carefully pour the oil over the ginger mixture in the bowl. Add the soy sauce, brown sugar, a squeeze of lime juice and olive oil (1 tsp for 2 people / 2 tsp for 4 people). Mix well and set aside.

TIP: The hot oil will bubble up and 'cook' the ginger, garlic and chilli.

Fry the tofu

Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the tofu and cook, tossing, until browned and warmed through, 4 minutes.

Toss the salad

In a large bowl, combine the Asian mixed leaves, cucumber, pear, sliced mint leaves, sweet chilli pumpkin and tofu. Pour over the ginger dressing and toss to coat.

TIP: Let the pumpkin, tofu and dressing cool slightly before adding to the salad to keep the leaves crisp.

Serve up

Divide the Malaysian tofu salad between plates and top with the crushed peanuts and reserved mint leaves.
