2 ½  tbsp Red Miso

2 tbsp Maple Syrup
4 Tbsp Rice Wine vinegar

To cook the brown rice, bring the water to a boil in a medium-sized saucepan. Once the water is boiled add a cup of brown rice, cover with a lid and reduce to simmer for 45 minutes without removing the lid. After 45 minutes remove saucepan from heat and set aside for an additional 15 minutes without removing the lid.

Chop tofu and veggies into bite-sized pieces, then sauté separately,
ensuring the tofu is cooked on a high heat.

To prepare Hoisin sauce, sauté the garlic briefly, add remaining ingredients and whisk together.

Once everything is cooked, combine veggies and tofu, then add hoisin sauce.

Heat for a further minute then serve.
