Quinoa Tofu Bowls with Spicy Peanut Sauce

It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of Asian dishes and flavors. Especially tofu and peanut sauce– both of which are included in this bowl! Can anyone  else agree with me that peanut sauce makes every dish 10x better?! (Well, almost.)

These vegan, gluten-free bowls are loaded with fresh arugula, tri-colored quinoa, sauteed mushrooms and crispy tofu + a spicy, 6 ingredient peanut sauce. (the best part)

I love that this recipe only requires a few simple, wholesome ingredients to make (as pictured). It’s packed with vitamins and antioxidants (from the veggies), and protein and fiber (from the quinoa and tofu). With everything put together, it’s a healthy, nutrient-packed meal!

I would love to know if you try these bowls! Feel free to leave a comment, rate the recipe, and tag your photo @wholesomesoybean on Instagram so I can see!

Happy cooking, friends! xx
