Tofu Pastries
Tofu Pastries
150 g (5½ oz) firm tofu
2 spring onions (scallions), chopped
3 teaspoons chopped fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves
½ teaspoon grated orange rind
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon cornflour (cornstarch)
60 g (¼ cup) sugar
125 ml (½ cup) seasoned rice vinegar
1 small Lebanese (short) cucumber, finely diced
1 small red chilli, thinly sliced
1 spring onion (scallion), extra, thinly sliced on the diagonal
2 sheets ready-rolled puff pastry
1 egg, lightly beaten 


  1. Drain the tofu, then pat dry and cut into 1 cm (½ inch) cubes.
  2. Put the spring onion, coriander, rind, soy and chilli sauces, ginger, cornflour and tofu in a bowl and gently mix. Cover, then refrigerate for 3–4 hours.
  3. Place the sugar and vinegar in a small saucepan and stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and add the cucumber, chilli and extra spring onion. Cool.
