PORTION PERFECTION MASHUP: Honey soy tofu & pumpkin risotto

The Portion Perfection Plate (developed by Advanced Accredited Practising Dietitian Amanda Clark) recommends half of your plate be taken up with vegetables, a quarter with a protein-rich source, and the other quarter with carbohydrate-rich foods.

An example of a perfectly portioned meal would be half a plate of steamed vegetables, a quarter of the plate with grilled chicken breast, and a quarter of the plate taken up with rice or bread.

But how about you apply this portion perfection concept to your meal… and then mix it all up!

It is with this underlying idea of a perfectly portioned plate (plus the knowledge that most people won’t perfectly lay out their food groups separately on a plate) that I have put together my latest recipe.

So I present to you: Honey Soy Tofu & Pumpkin Risotto.
