Peanut Tofu Buddha Bowl is a comforting meal using crispy tofu, fresh veggies and grains coated in a creamy peanut sauce. It's protein-packed, nourishing and very simple to prepare.


Units Scale
  • 400g firm tofu
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 medium carrot (julienned)
  • 1 scallion (thinly sliced)
  • Cooked brown rice (or quinoa or couscous)

Peanut Sauce

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
  • 2 tbsp sriracha
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 3-5 tbsp hot water



  1. Tofu: Dice the tofu into cubes, then toss with a mix of cornstarch, soy sauce, and a pinch of salt until evenly coated. Air-fry or bake until each side turns a golden brown.
  2. Broccoli: While the tofu is being cooked, chop the broccoli into florets.
  3. Peanuts sauce: Mix together the ingredients for the peanut sauce.


  1. Once the tofu is cooked, air-fry or bake the broccoli florets and drizzle them with sesame oil and salt.
  2. Mix the tofu with half of the peanut sauce. Then, assemble the bowl with rice, tofu, baked broccoli, and carrot slices. Drizzle with the remaining peanut sauce, and garnish with sesame seeds and sliced scallions.
