METHOD

1
• In a small saucepan with a lid, combine rice, 1 3/4 cups water and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. Place on high heat. • When the liquid comes to a simmer, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until all liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender, 40-45 minutes.
2
MISE EN PLACE • Cut tofu into 1/2-inch cubes. • Cut onion whites into 1-inch lengths. Finely chop greens, keeping white and green parts separate. • Halve carrots lengthwise. Thinly slice crosswise at an angle. • Cut or tear greens into bite-size pieces. • Peel and mince garlic.
3
In a bowl, combine tofu, turmeric, nutritional yeast, tamari and 1/2 teaspoon cooking oil. Stir gently to coat tofu in marinade.
4
• Place a sauté pan over medium heat. Add 1/2 teaspoon cooking oil and nuts. Cook, stirring often, until nuts are lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. • Stir in 1/2 packet sriracha for a nicely spiced, but not too hot, garnish. Add more sriracha as desired. • Transfer nuts to a small bowl.
5
• Increase heat to medium-high. Add 1/2 teaspoon cooking oil. When oil is hot, add onion whites. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just translucent, 2-3 minutes. • Add half of garlic. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. • Season to taste with kosher salt. Transfer to a plate.
6
• To pan, add 1/2 teaspoon cooking oil. When oil is hot, add carrots. Cook, stirring, until carrots are crisp-tender, 2-3 minutes. • Add remaining garlic and greens. Cook, stirring, until greens begin to darken and wilt, 1-2 minutes. • Season to taste with kosher salt. Transfer to onion plate.
7
• To pan, add 1 teaspoon cooking oil. When oil is hot, add tofu in a single layer. Cook without disturbing until browned on bottom, 3-4 minutes. • Flip tofu. Cook without disturbing until browned on opposite side, about 2 minutes more. • Season to taste with kosher salt.
8
• Fluff rice with a fork. Divide between 2 bowls. • Top each bowl with tofu and vegetables. • Garnish with spiced nuts, onion greens and benne seeds. Enjoy!
