Ingredients & Directions

Recipe Ingredients


Yield: 2 Spicy Peanut Tofu Bowls (2 Servings)
Needed Kitchenware: Air fryer, shallow container with lid, refrigerator, mixing bowls
  • 400 g tofu, firm, cubed
  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1½ tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • ½ tsp ginger powder
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup basmati rice
  • 200 g brussels sprouts, halved

Spicy Peanut Sauce
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • ¼ lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp Siracha sauce
  • 1 tbsp water
Recipe Directions


  • In a shallow container, mix the coconut aminos, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger together. Add the cubed tofu to the mixture and mix until the tofu is well-coated. Place the container with the lid on in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or longer.
  • Cook the basmatic rice according to the package directions and set aside.
  • In a bowl combine the brussels sprouts and olive oil.
  • Set the air fryer to 180°C or 350°F. Remove the marinating tofu from the fridge and place it in the airfryer with the brussels sprouts. Cook for 10-12 minutes.
  • In the meantime, make the spicy peanut sauce by mixing together the peanut butter, coconut aminos, lime juice, siracha, and water.
  • Serve the tofu and brussels sprouts on the rice. Place the pea shoots on the side, garnish with dulse flakes, and top with the spicy peanut sauce.

Use more or less of the Siracha sauce to control how spicy you want the sauce.
