15 ml (1 tbsp) lime juice
15 ml (1 tbsp) clear honey

method

1. Mix together the cumin, paprika, ginger, cayenne and sugar with plenty of seasoning. Cut the tofu into cubes and coat them thoroughly in the spice mixture.

2. Heat some oil in a preheated wok or large frying pan. Cook the tofu over a high heat for 3 - 4 minutes, turning occasionally. Take care not to break up the tofu too much. Remove with a slotted spoon. Wipe out the wok or pan with kitchen paper.

3. Add a little more oil to the wok or frying pan and stir-fry the garlic and spring onions for 3 minutes. Add the remaining vegetables and stir-fry over a medium heat for 6 minutes, or until beginning to soften and turn golden. Season well.

4. Return the tofu to the pan with the pine nuts, lime juice and honey. Heat through and serve.
