Carribean Inspired BBQ Tofu Vegetable Bowl
This BBQ Tofu bowl is full of Caribbean-inspired flavour - it's inspired by one of my favourite restaurants called One Love Vegetarian.
Servings: 6 servings
- 1 Package extra-firm tofu
- 1/2 red, yellow and green pepper, sliced
- 1 red onion sliced
- 1 cup small button mushrooms whole
- 1 plantain slightly overripe and sliced
- 1 avocado sliced
- 1/2 large sweet onion
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp BBQ sauce
- 1 scotch bonnet pepper, deseeded
- 1 tsp thyme
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 inch piece gingeroot
- 1 tsp allspice
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup white rice
- 1 tsp butter
- 1 pinch salt
Mix together ingredients under BBQ sauce heading in a Magic Bullet or blender.
Pat tofu dry with paper towel squeezing out all excess liquid. Cut into 1/2 inch thick strips and place in plastic bag with marinade, and let sit for 30 min.
Meanwhile, add all ingredients under the rice heading to a rice cooker or pot on the stove and cook until water is fully absorbed.
Heat olive oil on medium heat in a large skillet. Add tofu and marinade, along with vegetables, sauteeing for 10 minutes until tofu is browned and heated through and veggies are softened.
In a separate pan, heat remaining tbsp olive oil, then fry plaintain slices for 4-5 minutes per side over med-high heat.
Serve tofu mixture over cooked rice, garnishing with sliced avocado and plaintain slices. Enjoy!
