Wrap the tofu in a kitchen cloth and place something heavy on top of it – this will cause the moisture in the tofu to release.
In the meantime, prepare your vegetables. Chop the kale and pepper, grate the carrot and shred the cabbage. Toss everything in a salad bowl.
In a small bowl, mix all the dressing ingredients.
Heat the coconut in a pan. Cut the tofu into strips and season with salt and pepper — fry on medium-high heat for about 5 mins each side, or until golden brown.
Divide the salad between bowls, top with tofu, drizzle with the salad dressing and season with black pepper to serve.
