Looking for a fancy gluten-free, lactose-free and vegan dish? If so, the below recipe is what you need.
Millet is gluten free, tofu is lactose-free and both are vegan friendly. Even though I am neither vegan nor vegetarian, sometimes I prepare dishes without meat. These kind of dishes can taste really yummy when properly seasoned and when the right ingredients are used.
The dish from the recipe below combines leek, paprika, delicious ginger and chili pepper. Everything, of course is mixed with tofu cheese and served with millet.

Good to know when making vegan tofu with vegetables.
I used acacia honey. You can, of course, replace it with any natural type of honey.
If you don’t have fresh chili peppers, use dried chili flakes.
You can also serve the dish with rice, soy noodles or groats.
