WARM TOFU BOWL
WITH SPICY BBQ SAUCE.
It is with no surprise that the Buddha bowl trend is huge these days – it is so simple to make and soooo good. What is interesting with the bowl trend is that you can easily vary the toppings according to your desires and even the seasons! Without further ado, I am presenting you today my warm tofu bowl with spicy BBQ sauce.
This simple recipe will allow you to incorporate more tofu into your life. A must for the plant-based lifestyle. Speaking of tofu, did you know that tofu is low in calories, indeed, but also an excellent source of magnesium, manganese, essential fatty acids, zinc, potassium, calcium and vitamins?
Just plants. No bad stuff.
