How To Make A Buddha Bowl Tofu

How To Make A Buddha Bowl + Tofu

Prepare your Tofu Buddha bowl by cutting tofu into bite-sized pieces and place into a bowl or a container. Add soy sauce and rice vinegar and let it marinate for about 15 minutes, or longer if desired.

Next, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and wash, peel and cut carrots, broccoli and cauliflower.

Then, add vegetables on a large lined baking sheet, and drizzle on oil and mix well. Add smoked paprika, garlic powder and salt and pepper and toss well to coat. Cook in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 15-20 minutes (tossing once halfway) or until roasted to your liking.

After marinating the tofu, add 1/2 tbsp oil and mix well. Sprinkle on cornstarch and place onto another lined baking sheet (in a single layer, so the tofu pieces are not touching each other). Cook in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 25-30 minutes, flipping the pieces halfway.

Prepare your Buddha Bowl dressing such as almond butter dressing, peanut sauce or sweet tahini sauce

Once tofu and vegetables are cooked, evenly distribute the rice, lentils, vegetables and tofu into 4 bowls. Top with the PB2 Peanut Sauce and enjoy!

If meal prepping, store the bowl into a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 4-5 days and keep the sauce separately to add when ready to eat.
