Add this Crispy Spiced Tofu with Spiced Cauliflower and Broccoli to your repertoire and you’ll never get sick of meat-free Mondays again! Seriously, this recipe has got me making a batch every week at the moment. I love how easy and versatile it is to cook and eat – sometimes I’ll have it as a platter with a dip (like mayonnaise or hummus), other times I just mix it all together with some green leaves and make a salad like below.

And the flavours only get better over time! Try the spiced tofu, cauliflower and broccoli cold the next day with some salad, you won’t regret it!

I used Pickld spice blends in this recipe for a couple of reasons. Firstly, they taste absolutely divine! You know how sometimes you attempt to make a spice blend at home but for some reason it just doesn’t taste quite right? That’s why I love Pickld, they’ve nailed the quantities and proportions to make truly delicious flavour combos. Secondly, in addition to the spices, Pickld spice blends contain fermented and roasted lentils, dried mango, dried moringa and chia seeds making them not only an exceptional prebiotic and great for gut health, but also add to the protein intake for plant-based dishes! Perfect for meat-free Monday!
