Buddha Bowl Lunch or Dinner

Jean Moore


Last minute touches & Time to assemble! Place both cooked rices in the bottom of a large salad bowl (wide flat ones are best). Microwave the broccoli for approximately 2 to 3 minutes to keep it tender-crunchy. Heat a skillet on high, reduce to medium-high, place the Tofu in small batches to get crusted brown from the marinade. You can add extra vinegar to your personal taste

Make piles of Red Cabbage, Cilantro, Carrots, and Broccoli. Add the sauteed Tofu, add remaining green onions, Pour remaining Teriyaki marinade on the top, then garnish with peanuts. A fantastic healthy meal.
