Sushi Bowls with Japanese Teriyaki Tofu

This is usually a quick dinner in our home, as I place the rice to steam I prepare the other fresh vegetables and/ or tofu gently pan fry along with some greens. Decorate with whatever fresh produce you have in your fridge/ pantry and this will be a hit on your family dinner table too!

Sushi Bowls with Japanese Teriyaki Tofu

1 bunch of silver beet

1tsp black sesame seeds

2 cups of brown rice

2 carrots

1-2 crushed garlic

1 bunch of silverbeet and/ or bok choy

1tbs Olive oil

2tbs Hoisin sauce

Steam your rice in a steam cooker or oven top (follow packet instructions) while you wash and prepare your vegetables. Heat oil and saute garlic, greens and drizzle hoisin sauce and 1/2 cup of water and simmer until tender. 

Finely slice carrots, cut 1/6 avocado slices and dust with sesame seeds. Once greens are cooked, use same pan to grill mushrooms and then tofu.
