Crispy Tofu & Mixed Veg Rice Bowl (Vegan recipe)
One meal that I've been cooking a lot of lately is this delicious Crispy Tofu & Mixed Veg Rice Bowl. Packed full of nutritious veggies, plant-based protein and wholegrain carbs, this healthy meal fills me up but doesn't make me feel bloated or sleepy afterwards.

When I'm short on time or don't have the energy to spend an hour cooking, I love nothing more than just grabbing a bunch of fresh ingredients from the fridge, chopping everything up and popping it all into a wok for 10 minutes. You can't beat a good stir fry and this Crispy Tofu & Mixed Veg Rice Bowl is a fast and easy dish with only a little bit of prepping to do.

It's also a great way to use up any leftover veggies at the end of the week which is what I did for this particular post. Feel free to grab whatever you have in the fridge and make this tasty bowl your own!

Crispy Tofu & Mixed Veg Rice Bowl (Vegan recipe)
 Ingredients (serves 1)
  • 60g Brown Basmati Rice
  • 150g firm, drained & pressed Tofu
  • Pinches of mixed Spices (e.g Paprika, Cayenne, Turmeric, Cumin etc)
  • 1 tsp of Cornflour
  • 2 tsp of Toasted Sesame Oil
  • Large handful of leftover mixed Veg (I used Broccoli, Kale, Runner Beans, Chestnut Mushrooms, Chillies and Yellow Pepper)
  • Sprinkle of chopped Peanuts (to serve, optional)
  • Salt & Pepper or Soy Sauce (to serve, optional)


Method
  • Cut the Tofu into bite-sized cubes and add them to a bowl with the mixed Spices, Cornflour and 1 tsp of Toasted Sesame Oil. Mix well and leave to marinade whilst the rice is cooking or if using microwaveable rice, leave for at least 20 minutes. 
  • Cook the Brown Basmati Rice according to the pack instructions.
  • Add 1 tsp of Toasted Sesame Oil to a wok over a medium heat and add all of the chopped leftover Veg and the marinaded Tofu. Stir fry everything together for around 8-10 minutes, until the Tofu becomes crispy.
  • Plate up the bowl with the Rice first, then add the Tofu and Veg on top. Sprinkle over the Peanuts if using, and add your seasoning of choice. Enjoy!

P.S: You can try this dish with my recipe for Crispy Madras Tofu Bites.
