Step 1

Firstly, cook the rice. Rinse and drain the dry rice and then add to a saucepan with 1.6 ltr water. On a hob, allow the water to heat and cook on a medium high heat for about 20 minutes, until half the water has evaporated. Then, lower the heat and cook the rice for a further 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

Next, prepare the tofu, red onion, broccoli, cucumber and tomato.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a wok and fry the onion and garlic for 30 seconds. Add the tofu and stir fry for 2 minutes or until golden. Then add the rice and stir fry for 2 minutes.

Next, add the onion and broccoli and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Make a hole in the centre of the rice mixture and pour in the beaten eggs. Lightly scramble for 30 seconds. Next add the fish sauce and honey and stir together.

Step 3

Remove the rice mixture from the heat and divide into bowls. Serve with slices of cucumber, tomato wedges and a wedge or two of lime and sprinkled with pepper.

There seems to be a lot of garlic in this dish but it's one of the main ingredients so don't feel you should scrimp on them
