2 T (30 ml) honey
2 t (10 ml) Ina Paarman’s Chilli & Garlic Seasoning
350 g firm tofu, cut into ± 1½ cm blocks

Method

Snip the corner of the pack of Char-grilled Peppers and pour out ¼ cup (60 ml) of the marinade. Add honey together with Chilli & Garlic Seasoning, stir to mix. Pour into a plastic bag.
Add tofu blocks and shake gently to coat. Marinate overnight or at least for a few hours.
Pour off the remaining marinade into a medium size mixing bowl and bring to a fast boil in the microwave.
Immediately add all the shredded cabbage, toss and season lightly with Vegetable Spice.
Stir-fry the broccoli in a little oil until bright green. Add 2 T (30 ml) of water, cover with a lid and steam-cook for 2 – 3 minutes until just tender and bright green. Season lightly with Vegetable Spice and keep on one side.
Add Bulgar wheat and Vegetable Stock Powder to the boiling water.
Cook for 8 minutes until tender. Drain, return to saucepan and toss with Creamy Herb Dressing.
