PEANUT SAUCE POWER BOWL

We were in the mood for a quick healthy lunch! This bowl is so delicious and will be ready in a flash. Loaded with protein and plenty of veggies it’s a great way to get that mid day boost you’ve been looking for!

YOU WILL NEED:

FOR THE BOWL:

  • One pack of rice noodles (thick or thin)
  • Half a block of extra firm tofu (pressed)
  • 1/4 cup of edamame
  • One ripe avocado (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup of broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup of carrots (shredded)
  • 1/4 cup of cucumber (sliced)
  • 1 tbsp of sesame seeds to garnish

FOR THE SAUCE:

  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 2 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp of lime juice
  • 2 tbsp of garlic (diced finely)
  • 2 tbsp of rice vinegar

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Boil or steam your broccoli florets until tender, followed by your edamame.
  2. In a separate pot boil some water for your rice noodles, cook for a few minutes until tender.
  3. Strain rice noodles and transfer them into a bowl of cold water. Set aside.
  4. Cut your tofu into small cubes and air fry for around 7-8 minutes or until outside of cubes turns golden brown (If you don’t have an air-fryer, you can pan-fry!)
  5. Since none of your other ingredients require cooking you can begin to build your bowl.
  6. Start with a base of rice noodles. Be sure to strain excess water first!
  7. Top noodles with cubed tofu, edamame, broccoli florets, shaved carrot, sliced cucumber and sliced avocado.
  8. FOR YOUR SAUCE: In a separate bowl mix your peanut butter, water, soy sauce, garlic, lime juice and rice vinegar. Stir well until smooth
  9. Drizzle your peanut sauce overtop of your bowl. Top with sesame seeds and enjoy!
