Shiso is hard to find in the UK but a prized ingredient in Japanese cooking. It has an instantly recognisable, lovely grassy taste that gives this quick, creamy peanut tofu a restaurant feel.

1. Drain the tofu and pat dry with paper towel. Cut into small 1cm cubes. Heat a medium-sized frying pan with 1 tsp oil on a medium-high heat and cook the tofu for 10 mins, turning occasionally, until golden.
2. Meanwhile, trim the tenderstem. Heat a medium-sized pan with 1 tsp oil on a medium heat, fry the tenderstem for 1 minute, then add a splash of water and place a lid on the pan, steam for 4 mins until tender. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
3. To make the peanut sauce; in a bowl, mix the peanut paste with a squeeze of lime juice, 1/3 of the tamari and 3 tbsp cold water. Add only a few pinches of the curry powder (to taste) and mix well.
4. Peel and grate the ginger. Thinly slice the spring onion and roughly chop the red pepper.
5. In the same pan the tenderstem was in, add 1 tsp oil on a medium-high heat and add the ginger and spring onion to the pan for 1 minute, then add the red pepper, edamame beans, remaining tamari and remaining juice from the lime. Add the quinoa and cook for 3 mins until heated through.
6. Add the peanut sauce to the tofu and cook for 2-3 mins to heat the sauce, add more water to thin the sauce if needed.
7. Spoon the ginger edamame quinoa on two warm plates alongside the peanut tofu and tenderstem. Sprinkle over the shiso leaves.
