Get your sushi rice on (follow pack instructions)
Tofu time. Slice your tofu into 1cm thick strips. Get three bowls out. Add flour to one, and breadcrumbs to another. Into the third, pour the water from a chickpea tin. Whisk it up until it is white and frothy. Dip your tofu in the flour, then the chickpea froth, and then the breadcrumbs.
Heat a pan of vegetable oil and cook your tofu for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until the breadcrumbs are golden.
Nearly all the elements are ready now. Last element is the dressing. Into a bowl, add 4 tablespoons of soy sauce, the juice of half a lime, a teaspoon of grated ginger and 4 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix them together.
Remove the peppers from the oven. In the tray, dress them with 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, a tablespoon of olive oil and a teaspoon of grated ginger.
Assembly time. Line a cake tin with nori seaweed, brushing down the edges with your dressing. Then add a layer of rice. Top this with your roasted peppers, and then add a layer of seaweed. On top of this place your tofu. Pour some dressing over the tofu, and then spoon on your guac. Top the guac with the remainder of the rice. Smooth it out, pour on any leftover dressing and juices from the peppers, and then top it with a final layer of seaweed.
Leave the sushi cake to chill for 15 minutes, and then flip the tin upside down, ease it off the cake, slice it up and tuck in!
