Description

This tofu bowl with rice stars crispy tofu, crisp veggies, spicy mayo and crunchy bits of fried onion! Fuel your day with plant-powered goodness.


Ingredients

Scale

For the tofu

  • 14 or 15 ounces extra firm tofu
  • Kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch (or arrowroot starch)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons smoked soy sauce or soy sauce (or tamari for gluten-free)

For the tofu bowl

  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 2 ripe avocados, sliced or diced
  • 1/2 English cucumber, diced
  • 2 large carrots, julienne peeled or shredded
  • 4 radishes, sliced
  • ½ cup mayonnaise or vegan mayo
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Sriracha
  • Crunchy fried onions, to garnish (required!)
  • Chunky sea salt, to garnish (or soy sauce)

Instructions

  1. Rinse the rice. Bring 1 1/2 cups of water to boil in a medium saucepan. Add the rice and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cover. Simmer 12 to 15 minutes or until the water is fully absorbed (check by pulling back with a fork). Remove the heat, cover and allow to steam for 5 to 10 minutes. Then fluff with a fork.
  2. Follow the instructions to cook the Baked Tofu or Crispy Tofu*.
  3. Chop the avocados. Dice the cucumber. Julienne or shred the carrots. Slice the radishes.
  4. Make the spicy mayo: mix together the mayonnaise and the Sriracha.
  5. To serve, place the rice in a bowl and top with the tofu and veggies. Sprinkle salt on the veggies or a tiny bit of soy sauce around the whole bowl. Top with the spicy mayo and a generous sprinkle of crunchy fried onions.

Notes

*Open the recipes in another tab for easy navigating. The Baked Tofu method is easier and hands off, but takes longer (it includes a few optional additional spices and more cornstarch). The Crispy Tofu is quicker, but requires more effort at the skillet.
