It’s a new year, and with a new year usually comes new goals. Sometimes I think we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to start the year off with something big, with a BANG. But that can also seem very daunting and let’s be honest, I think sometimes it’s nice to make little changes at first- to work towards something a little bigger. If you are thinking you want to eat a little healthier or to cook more during the week, this might be the perfect dish to start with. This Tofu Buddha Bowl is savoury, spicy, protein-packed and an easy weeknight dish.
here are a few reasons why I love this Tofu Vegan Buddha Bowl, so listen up!
- The peanut satay sauce is TO DIE FOR. Feel free to just make the sauce and eat it by the spoonful. The creaminess mixed with the crispiness of the veggies and tofu is a match made in heaven.
- This dish is very versatile. You can use any vegetables in this buddha bowl. This can be your “clean out the fridge meal” at the end of the week. It’s a great way not to waste any veggies that haven’t been used up. I decided to steam my veggies but roasting the veggies would be a killer idea as well.
- This bowl is flavour-packed, straightforward to make and it makes for a good wholesome and healthy meal. You might just have to add this to your favourite vegan tofu recipes list.

This dish is Picky Husband Approved- so you know that it doesn’t have yams in it and it will be a winner for most eaters out there! Side note though, Adam isn’t a huge tofu fan (hence the Picky Husband title). I don’t know if he ever will be and that’s ok. He’s a texture guy and the texture of tofu just isn’t for him. He eats it if it’s blended up like in my Pesto Lasagna Rolls. Basically, he likes it as long as he can’t see it. So this Tofu Buddha Bowl is also great without the tofu, and you could add some nuts or extra veg to it.
Maybe this tofu vegan buddha bowl will help you start 2019 off by making small changes. Perhaps because it’s easy to whip up it will allow you to stay full while you conquer whatever new dreams await you this year. Or maybe it will help keep you sane in the busyness of another week. Either way, this bowl is a
