This is the easiest throw-together meal and it will really satisfy both the body and the tastebuds – it’s salty and sweet, and packed with protein and carbs!


  • ½ red onion, peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 375 g/13 oz ready-marinated tofu cubes
  • about 4 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • a handful of crisp lettuce, such as cos or romaine, roughly chopped
  • 4 tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 large pitta or flatbreads, warmed


    1. Put the onion in a small bowl, cover with cold water and leave it to soak for 10 minutes before draining. This removes some of the astringency from the raw onion.

    2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then add the marinated tofu and about half the hoisin sauce. Toss it around the pan so it all gets coated and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes. Remove and put to one side.

    3. Fill each of the warmed breads with a little remaining hoisin sauce, then stuff with lettuce, tomatoes, onion and tofu and enjoy.
