A couple of weeks ago I promised to post a recipe for a veggie rice bowl. This recipe comes together fairly quickly and tastes great- the fresh ginger is a highlight. Enjoy!

Quick and Easy Veggie Rice Bowl
Makes 2-3 generous servings

Olive oil
1/2 package (8 ounces) firm tofu (not silken), cubed
Teriyaki sauce (I like Trader Joe's "Island Soyaki")
4 ounces shiitake mushrooms (about 10)
2 cloves of garlic, minces
1 cup of shredded carrots
1 inch of fresh ginger root, peeled and minced
6 green onions, chopped
4-6 cups chopped bok choy
1/2 teaspoon shichimi togarashi (or red chili flakes, adjust amount to your desired level of spice)
2 cups cooked brown rice

  1. Heat a little olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute tofu until lightly browned. Reduce heat to medium-low and add enough teriyaki sauce to generously coat tofu and to have some sauce in the pan and cook a couple more minutes. Set aside.
  2. Heat a little more olive oil over medium heat and add mushrooms, garlic, and carrots. Saute until veggies begin to soften a bit then add ginger, green onions, and bok choy. Cook just until bok choy is wilted and slightly soft then add tofu and teriyaki sauce and remove from heat. Serve over brown rice.
