Sweet Chili Tofu Bowl
Here is a Sweet and Simply way to have a bowl of tofu, veggies and rice – Sweet Chili Tofu Bowl
There are times when you have extra leftover ingredients that are stored as decorations in your fridge. You certainly need to use up what’s left before its trash day to throw those soon-to-be-expired goodies, right? I figured it has been a couple of days that half of a block of tofu has been waiting to be mouth bombed. I always look at the decorations in my fridge to see what I can whip up.
Guess what I found?
Sweet Chili sauce!……Leftover rice!…..a half bag full of Popeyes (Spinach – for those who don’t know)
Now, let’s get your lazy bootays up and start 😉 Trust me, you’ll be like, “This is way too easy!”
Just a little peak of how I make mine:
Grab a cup of white rice and microwave or heat it up on the stove.
Prep the spinach. Half of a bag will do as they will shrivel up once you saute them. I sauteed them with minced Gs and Os.
Start cutting up the tofu into squares. I like mine small so they can fry faster and get crispy. Others, like theirs huge to swallow! [LOL]. I used extra virgin olive oil but any oil will do as your preference. I usually use the same seasonings: G Pow, O Pow, and CUMin but you can leave your tofu naked and omit the seasonings. Then, sprinkle and massage them. Throw them in the pan with the hot oil. Fry the tofu to your mouth’s preferred crispness. Add the sweet chili in the pan and caramelize them!
Well you all know what to do next. Make it pretty. Take the damn picture. Post it on Instagram. BTW, tag me with #NaughtyKitchen so I can voyeur your page!
Didn’t I mention it was way too easy?!
