Ingredients

  • ½ cup brown rice, dry (90 g)
  • 7 oz firm tofu (200 g)
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 cup broccoli florets (90 g)
  • 4 kale leaves, de-stemmed & chopped
  • 4 asparagus spears, chopped
  • ½ cup chickpeas, cooked & drained (80 g)
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 avocado, sliced

Tahini Dressing

  • 1.5 tbsp tahini
  • 3 limes, juice only
  • 5 tbsp water
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350° F (175° C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cook the rice according to package instructions and turn off the heat once all of the water has been absorbed.
  3. In the meantime, drain the tofu and cut it into small cubes. Add ginger powder and a pinch of salt, toss to coat evenly, then arrange on your baking sheet in a single layer.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, then toss to ensure it roasts evenly, and bake for 15 more minutes, until golden and crispy. Once done, remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  5. While the tofu is baking, prepare the rest of the ingredients: add everything that’s listed for the dressing in a small bowl and whisk together until homogenous. You can also use a blender for this.
  6. Heat a non-stick pan and add the broccoli, kale and asparagus with a splash of water. Cook for 7 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently, until everything has softened but is still a bit crunchy. 
  7. If you want, add the cooked chickpeas to your pan for a few minutes to allow them to become warm. Otherwise, add them on top of your cooked veggies once you assemble your bowl!
  8. Divide the cooked brown rice between serving bowls, top with baked tofu, sautéd vegetables, avocado and chopped green onions. Drizzle with tahini dressing and enjoy!

Notes

  • You can use swiss chard or beet greens in place of the kale leaves.
  • Instead of the limes, you can use lemon juice or vinegar for the dressing.
  • To save some time, you can use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic in the dressing.
  • Any leftovers can be stored without the dressing in the fridge, lidded, for 3 days.
