INSTRUCTIONS

1
Bake the tofu

Preheat your oven to 450°F. Drain the tofu and cut it into ½-inch cubes. In a medium bowl toss the cubed tofu with salt, pepper, and potato starch. Be sure to evenly coat each cube! Line a baking sheet with the parchment paper, and lay out the tofu cubes, making sure they don’t touch. Bake until crisp, 30 to 35 minutes.

2
Cook the rice

While the tofu is baking, add the sushi rice, 1 ¼ cups water, and a pinch of salt to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce the heat to low. Cook the rice for 15 to 20 minutes, checking once or twice toward the end of the cooking process to make sure the rice isn’t sticking. Remove from heat, and leave covered until you’re ready to serve.

3
Prep to pickle

Rinse and dry the jalapeño and radishes. Thinly slice both. Peel and thinly slice the carrot.

4
Pickle time

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, vinegar, and ¾ cups water. Bring to boil over high heat. Once boiling, add the sliced jalapeño, carrot, and radish to the vinegar-sugar mixture. Remove saucepan from heat and let the vegetables pickle.

5
Mix it up

In a small bowl, mix together the sriracha and vegan mayonnaise. Rinse, dry, and thinly slice the cucumber. Pick the cilantro leaves and tender stems; discard the tough stems.

6
Build your bowl

Remove the pickled veggies from the brine. Divide the sushi rice between your bowls and top with the crispy tofu. Garnish with the pickled veggies, shredded red cabbage, sliced cucumber, cilantro leaves, and a drizzle of sriracha aioli. Enjoy!
