These cute little black bean tofu cups pack some serious Asian flavours. They are delicious as part of an oriental meal or served on their own as a light lunch.

  1. Mix together the black bean sauce, sweet chilli sauce, sesame oil and ginger in a large, shallow dish. Add the tofu and gently turn it until coated in the marinade. Leave to marinate for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Heat the oil in a large roasting tray, then carefully arrange the tofu in the tray and roast for 25 minutes, turning once, until golden and slightly crisp.
  3. Meanwhile, toast the sesame seeds in a pan for a few minutes, shaking frequently until golden brown.
  4. Arrange the separated lettuce leaves on a large serving platter and divide the tofu between them, placing them inside the ‘cups’. Scatter the spring onions, sesame seeds and chilli over the tofu before serving.
