Well, another bowl for you.
Bowls have kinda become my thing when I’m making dinner but don’t exactly have a plan. These came about after I was daydreaming on the combination of harissa and tahini, as one often does. You may daydream about exciting evening plans or goals, I fantasize about condiments.
I picked up a jar of harissa on a whim a few months ago and can’t get enough of the spicy, peppery taste. While I could drink hot sauce, I know not everyone shares my love of fire-breathing, and tahini is the perfect partner to cool things down.
I really love tofu in my bowls, especially when it’s prepared like this.
Dry roasting tofu in the oven, then marinating it in dressing is a cheaters way to get a fried texture, without any actual frying.
Here’s the part where I sound like a broken record: use whatever vegetables/grains you want. I’m partial to crispy potatoes and roasted broccoli, but whatever floats your boat. That’s the beauty of bowls and why they are a recipe, but not really.
Make the sauce, make the tofu, the rest is up to you. Enjoy! xo
