Vegan Tofu & Sweet Potato Buddha Bowl

This recipe from Niall Kirkland is just the thing for a quick summer lunch — it’s the perfect combination of fresh veg, filling sweet potato chunks and crispy tofu. The soy and sriracha marinade is something pretty special too.

It’s a great plant-based meal to add to your repertoire if you’re looking for new vegan dishes to keep things fresh, or even if you just want to try something a little bit different within the endless chicken and rice prep.

Buddha bowls are a hearty and healthy way to get a generous helping of greens and grains into your diet. Bursting with color, flavor and texture, they can be completely tailored to your own tastes — so feel free to switch out any of the extras if you prefer other veg.
