There is a renowned restaurant in Athens, Georgia, called The Grit. Its signature vegetarian dish, the Golden Bowl, is a favorite of several of us on the PeachDish team. This is our take on that classic. The well-seasoned tofu and vegetables, sautéed and served over brown rice, come together with a surprisingly rich and delicious gravy.

To make the rice: In a small saucepan with a lid, combine rice, water, bouillon cube and bay leaves. Place on high heat and bring to a simmer. Cover, turn heat down to low, and cook about 40-45 minutes, or until all liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender. While rice cooks, prepare tofu and vegetables.
Prepare your mise en place: Dice tofu into 1/2-inch cubes. Remove and discard mushroom stems; slice caps. Remove and discard pepper stem and seeds; dice flesh. Pick and roughly chop parsley leaves. Peel, halve and slice shallot.
Place a large, nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat, and add 1 1/2 teaspoons cooking oil. When oil is shimmering, add tofu and cook 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until slightly browned. Add 1 packet Bragg and 1/2 teaspoon Peachdish salt. Transfer tofu to a bowl and set aside.
Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, adjust heat to high, and add mushrooms. Cook 2-3 minutes. Add peppers and shallot; cook 2-3 minutes more. Remove from heat, and stir in parsley and remaining 1/2 teaspoon PeachDish salt. Transfer vegetables to bowl with tofu.
To make gravy: Return sauté pan to medium heat; add butter. When butter has melted, add flour, turn heat down to low and cook while whisking 2-3 minutes. Add remaining 1 packet Bragg, nutritional yeast and kosher salt, then whisk in water. Cook and whisk until mixture starts to simmer and has thickened. Cook and stir 2-3 minutes more, then remove from heat.
To serve, remove bay leaves from rice and fluff rice with a fork.
Divide rice between 2 bowls, add tofu/vegetable mixture and top with gravy. Enjoy!
