Buddha bowls are a super trendy thing now. The name for this grain based bowls inspired by Buddhist monks and nuns, have been eating this way for over two thousand years. I'm feeling grateful for this super healthy, balanced meal inspiration, which always offers a colorful balance of plants, additional fiber, healthy fats and protein!
What You'll Need:
For the dressing:
3 Tbsp rice wine vinegar

1 Tbsp honey
3 Tbsp Tamari or soy sauce
1 block tofu, sliced lengthwise and pressed*
2 c cooked brown rice

1 c fresh cilantro, chopped
2 c lettuce greens, chopped
1/4 c peanuts, roasted & unsalted
*Press tofu by layering on a plate: tea towel, tofu, tea towel, something heavy-ish. While water presses out of tofu, prepare dressing and salad ingredients:
Whisk dressing ingredients in a small bowl.
Prepare and arrange ingredients in a large bowl or dinner plate. Cube press tofu and toss with salad. Drizzle with dressing, sprinkle with peanuts, and DIVE IN!
