Maple Soy Tofu Rice Bowl

I’m “soy” in love with this glaze 🤤⁣

Tofu with a maple soy glaze, sushi rice, edamame beans, carrots, cucumber, peppers, avocado & sesame seeds 🤤 ⁣

This dish is based on the Hawaiian poke bowl (pronounced poh-kay, sounds like okay) 🌺 ⁣

Traditional poke contains white rice topped with raw fish marinated in sesame oil, soy sauce, green onions and other spices.⁣

It’s believed that it was first prepared by native Polynesians and also later became influenced by Japanese workers in the 1800s.⁣

Here’s how I made my vegan bowl (the tofu is based on a recipe by @bonappetitmag):⁣

🌱 Drain and press tofu then cut into 9 slabs⁣
🌱 Combine 1/4 cup soy sauce, pinch of chilli flakes, 1/2 tsp ground ginger, 3 tbsp maple syrup, 3 tbsp rice vinegar in a bowl and mix⁣
🌱 Heat 1/2 cup neutral oil (I used grapeseed) in a frying pan then add your tofu and cook for about 4 mins on each side⁣
🌱 Drain the oil and then place the tofu back into the pan before covering with 3/4 of the glaze. Cool for about 4 mins⁣
🌱 Add your desired ingredients to a serving bowl. I opted for avocado, carrot, edamame beans, peppers, cucumber and your tofu⁣
🌱 Top with the leftover glaze and some sesame seeds⁣

Enjoy! 🥰
