Buddha Bowl with BBQ Tofu

I love Buddha Bowls. There are so many creative ways of making them, they’re easy to adapt to your own personal preferences, and are most often both filling and a healthy dinner option!

This version is made with BBQ tofu, tamari flavoured vegetables and wholegrain rice, but if you prefer Quinoa or noodles they also work great.


Buddha Bowl with BBQ-tofu
Serves: 4
  • 400 g firm tofu
  • wholegrain rice for 4 people
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 tbsp tamari sauce
  • ½ cup BBQ sauce of your choice
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • sesame seeds
  1. Drain the tofu, wrap it in a clean towel, place on a plate and put a heavy object on top (like an iron cast skillet). Set aside for 30–60 minutes to press (that way the tofu is able to suck up more of the BBQ sauce).
  2. In the meantime, boil the rice according to the instructions on the package. Break the broccoli into smaller florets and fry in oil for about 1 minute on medium heat. Add water, cover with a lid and fry for a few more minutes. Add bell pepper, corn and tamari and sauté for 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Dice the tofu and fry in some oil until golden. Add the BBQ sauce and let simmer for about 3 minutes until the tofu has absorbed some of the sauce and the sauce has thickened.
  4. Place rice in bowls and top with the fried vegetables and the BBQ tofu. Sprinkle with some sesame seeds and avocado and serve!
