Preparation steps

1.

Rinse, trim and halve Brussel sprouts. Cook sprouts in salted simmering water until al dente, about 15 minutes. Rinse and drain. Heat grill.

2.

Cut tofu into approximately 1/2-inch thick slices. Mix oil with curry, turmeric, and lemon zest and brush mixture on tofu slices. Toast nuts in a dry frying pan, stirring, until fragrant. Place tofu slices on grill and cook until golden-brown, 2-3 minutes per side.

3.

Peel and finely chop garlic. Melt butter in a pan and fry garlic until golden. Add Brussels sprouts and orange zest, and cook briefly, stirring. Add broth and cook until hot, 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

4.

Divide tofu slices among plates and sprinkle with paprika and nuts. Serve brussel sprouts on the side.
