  • 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)


  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.


  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
