I was craving my Sweet & Spicy Sriracha Tofu the other day, because, seriously, so yum. BUT I was also craving a fresh buddha bowl type of thing. Yes, I believe you have already figured out what happened, you clever little thing you. A Sticky Sriracha Tofu Bowl happened. And my oh my was that a good thing to happen.
Part of me thought, "you don't need to share this recipe online, Sam, people can figure out this stuff on their own." But then another part of me thought, "OMG so delicious, must tell everyone immediately!"
The second part won (clearly), because if you hadn't thought to combine the sweet & spicy sriracha with an array of fresh colourful crispy veggies on a bed of fluffy rice, then you are missing out in a big, big, way. And I can't have my readers missing out on any kind of vegan deliciousness. All deliciousness must be shared!
This sticky sriracha tofu bowl is the perfect combo of comfort food cosy, combined with fresh raw and crispy. It's better than any buddha bowl, it's magical!
