Spice in the Kitchen: Baked Tofu with Fried Cashews Rice Bowl

You can never have too many rice bowls!

While I continue on with my cleanse, the cruel fact of the matter is, even though I have been drinking green juices and soups (with the occasional sneaking of raw nuts--shhh!), I still have three other people for which I need to cook! Sigh...

So, while I pureed most of the veggies you see in this bowl for my vegan cleansing soup (I'll post a pic of that later when I figure out a creative way of photographing it), I decided to saute them with tons of ginger, red pepper and a dash of Chinese Five Spice and topped a bowl of basmati rice with the finished product. Some fried slices of Trader Joe's baked tofu and cashews covered the other half of the bowl. (Fried cashews are where it is at, plus they give the bowl some needed crunch and texture.) Next, I topped it off with some Genji ginger miso dressing (Philly, represent!), Bragg's, and Sriracha. The kids were served a less complicated version of it. I doubt they would be too happy with the cashews or the spicy sauce! Mr. Scissors loved it and I think he's actually having it for lunch as we speak!

  1. Yum! The slices of tofu look so perfectly crispy. I finally bought a tofu press and the texture is so much better!
