  1. Heat the tofu under a hot grill until lightly browned on both sides, or cook on a ridged, cast-iron grill pan. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. Add the ginger, garlic and chilli with half the stock to a pan and cook over a low heat for 4-5 minutes, until softened.
  3. Add the coriander, cumin and turmeric, and cook for 2 minutes, then add the water and simmer gently for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the grilled tofu cubes and simmer for a further 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, heat the remaining stock in a wok or deep frying pan.
  6. Add the peppers and spring onions and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, then add the shredded pak choi and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, until wilted.
  7. Season with the soy sauce. Serve the tofu immediately with the stir-fried vegetables.
  8. Tip: You could use Quorn pieces as an alternative to tofu.
