Ingredients:

  • 14 oz tofu

  • 1 large yam or sweet potato (cut into ¾ inch cubes)

  • Olive oil

  • 3/4 cup uncooked black rice


Peanut Sauce Ingredients

  • 3 thin slices ginger (cut across the grain, quartered)

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos

  • 3 tbsp maple syrup

  • 3 tbsp toasted sesame oil

  • 1/2 –1 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 3/4 tsp salt


Bowl Veggie Options

  • 1–2 cups cabbage, shredded

  • 1–2 cups carrots, shredded

  • 1–2 cups beets, shredded

  • 1 cup snap peas, sliced

  • 1/2 cup radishes, thinly sliced

  • 1 avocado

  • 1/4 cup sprouts (sunflower, broccoli, or alfalfa)


Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F

  2. Dry and cut tofu into 2 inch squares (or 2-3 inch long strips). Place on parchment-lined sheet pan and sprinkle with salt.

  3. Chop yam into 3/4 inch cubes and place on other side of pan (or a separate one). Drizzle with avocado or olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Toss and place each cube evenly on the pan.

  4. Make peanut sauce: place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Reserve 1/2 for the bowls and use remaining to coat tofu. Pour over tofu and brush tops and sides. Place in oven for 25-30 minutes.

  5. Boil rice in 6 cups lightly salted water until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and let sit in strainer for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork.

  6. Prepare veggies.

  7. When tofu is caramelized and sweet potatoes are fork tender, assemble bowls.

  8. Drizzle remaining peanut sauce or place in side dish.


Tips:

  1. Dry tofu 2 hours ahead of time by wrapping in paper towel and placing a heavy object on top.

  2. Serve immediately or eat later cold. Both options are equally delicious.

  3. If you don't have all of the ingredients, substitute! Here are a few options:

  • black rice - farro or quinoa

  • peanut butter - almond butter, sunbutter, or cashew butter

  • coconut aminos - GF Braggs Liquid Amino Acids or low sodium soy sauce

  • maple syrup - honey
