2 garlic cloves, crushed

2 tbsp mirin

3⁄4 cup sushi rice, cooked (see below)

1 tsp tamari

1⁄4 cup finely chopped mint



Place spinach in a large bowl. Pour over enough boiling water to cover, set aside for 5 minutes. Drain, then refresh under cold water. Squeeze out any excess water, then cut spinach into 4cm lengths and place in a bowl. Add garlic, sesame oil, and 1 tablespoon of the mirin. Toss to combine, season with salt and pepper, then set aside.

Place zucchini in another bowl, add the vinegar, remaining mirin and ginger, toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper, set aside to pickle.

To make the broccoli rice, place the broccoli in a large food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Heat oil in a large wok or frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, mirin and chopped broccoli and cook for 4 minutes, stirring. Add the sushi rice and tamari and toss to heat through. Remove from the heat. Add the mint and toss to combine. Divide between 4 bowls. Top with spinach, zucchini and tofu. Serve topped with chilli oil, sesame seeds, spring onion and shiso.


How To Cook Sushi Rice

To cook the sushi rice, rinse 3⁄4 cup of sushi rice in a colander under cold water until the water runs clear. Then place in a small saucepan with 1 cup of water. Place over medium heat and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid and cook for 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and stand, covered with a lid, for 5 minutes.
