Y’all know how much I love a quick meal – especially after some high intensity movement. Buddha Bowls are my go-to for something fast and nourishing. This is one of the best bowls I’ve ever had and it’s all because of Gayle, the lovely lady behind The Soup Solution. I added her CRISPY CRUMBLED TOFU to a Buddha bowl yesterday and it was absolutely divine. If you are a meat eater, I promise you won’t miss the meat at all after trying this. In fact, I call it the Power Bowl for this very reason. I had this after an intense HIIT workout and while I usually get hungry after a couple hours, I was beyond satisfied with this. Happy tummy, fuelled muscles!
This took me less than 30 minutes to prepare and I had enough to make 3 meals! (Cook once, eat thrice! I’m all about efficiency. ✌🏼)
And if you are wondering if it is kid approved, K was eating by the spoonful after school. (She turned down mac & cheese!) Somebody (J) might’ve also pulled out a spoon and a beer while devouring this. ☺️
You won’t want to skip this. 🍲
Recipe | Power Bowl with Crispy Tofu
Makes 2 healthy meals or 3 smaller servings.
Spicy Crispy Crumbled Tofu *See note below to make it non-spicy.
2C cooked rice, white or brown
Assorted fixings: sautéed bok choy, zucchini, carrots, cabbage, spinach, corn, avocado, lettuce, mushrooms, sesame seeds, sriracha
1. Make crispy crumbled tofu according to recipe. I left out the sambal oelek because I didn’t have any.
2. Assemble your base with one cup of rice.
3. Add your favourite fixings and drizzle the top with sriracha if desired. I used what I had in the fridge: corn, avocado, cremini mushrooms and romaine lettuce.
*Other grains, such as quinoa, can be substituted for rice.
*If you prefer your tofu without spice, simply leave out the sambal oelek.
*Add all of your favourite veggies! Feel free to get creative with it!
