Ingredients

  • 1 cup U.S.-grown jasmine rice
  • 1 block super firm tofu pressed
  • 2 cups shiitake mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 radishes sliced
  • 1/2 zucchini sliced
  • 3 cups spinach

for the sauce:

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tsp gochujang

Instructions

  • Cook the rice according to the instructions on the package. While the rice is cooking, bake the tofu.
  • After you've flipped the tofu, start cooking the vegetables. Heat olive oil in a large skillet, then add the mushrooms and garlic and sauté them for about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the mushrooms and garlic, then add the spinach to that same skillet and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  • Last, make the sauce: whisk soy sauce, maple syrup, sesame oil, and sriracha together and set aside.
  • Pour rice into a bowl then arrange everything into segments in your bowl: the tofu, mushrooms, spinach, radishes, and zucchini. Drizzle everything with the sauce and enjoy!

Notes

Make sure to use super or extra firm tofu, and to always press it beforehand!
*Can use tamari in place of soy sauce
