Creating your Thai inspired Buddha bowl

Tofu Directions

  • Start by draining the water from your tofu and use paper towels or a kitchen towel to press down the tofu and get rid of the excess water.
  • Then cut up your tofu into small cubes.
  • In a bowl, add the corn starch, salt, garlic powder, and pepper and mix them well.
  • Coat each tofu piece with the mixture and then lay it on a baking sheet.
  • Bake your tofu squares for 20 minutes at 400*F.
  • In the meantime, add about 3/4 cup of your Thai peanut sauce to a bowl.
  • When you take out your tofu cubes, give them a few minutes to cool off, then dip each tofu piece in the sauce.
  • Put the tofu back on the tray and bake for another 20 minutes.
  • *Keep in mind that this makes 2 portions* Feel free to cut the recipe in half if you don’t need that much.

Assembling your bowl

  • Add the Romaine lettuce as the base of your bowl.
  • Add your cooked quinoa, red cabbage, grated carrots, cherry tomatoes, roasted sweet potatoes, edamame, roasted broccoli, and tofu to the bowl.
  • Drizzle with more Thai peanut sauce.
