DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a wok and stir-fry the peppers, onion garlic and chilli for 3-4 minutes Add the cumin, cook for a few seconds, then add the tomato and cook for a minute longer.
  • Add the tofu and continue to cook until the tofu loses its "raw" taste (usually 3-4 mins). Add the pasta, mix well and heat through.
  • Take of the heat and mix in the nutritional yeast (this is so that the yeast doesn't get overheated and lose some of its nutritional value). Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle each serving with some chopped coriander.
