Sriracha Peanut Cauliflower Rice Bowls with Caramelized Veggie

I’m totally crushing on cauliflower right now- I often forget about cauliflower, and I am not sure why because it’s such a versatile ingredient. Turns out it works perfectly as “rice” in this recipe. Then you add sriracha peanut crispy tofu and caramelized red onion, zucchini, shiitake mushrooms, broccoli, and baby bok choy for a new, fresh take on an old favorite.

Sriracha Peanut Cauliflower Rice Bowls with Caramelized Veggie

Here’s the good news, the caramelized veggies are cooked on one sheet and in just 15 minutes with the Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven! But wait, there’s more good news- The crispy tofu is cooked at the same time, in the same oven as the caramelized veggies making this a 30-minute-to-die-for meal the whole family will enjoy. With a newborn (and toddler) at home my whole routine has been uprooted. Before I know it, it’s time to cook dinner, and if I’m going to try to keep some sanity in my weekly workflow, I need to stick to our bedtime routine as closely as possible. With the Sharp countertop oven I am able to cook dinner quickly to ensure we eat dinner on time, and it allows me to step away to feed/change/play with my children while it does its thing.

The Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven revolutionizes cooking to cook better, healthier meals by combining superheated steam and conventional, radiant heat making your food crispy and browned on the outside, moist and delicious on the inside. I was very curious as to how using steam would make my food crispy, but it did! I also noticed that the veggies retained their vibrancy more than when cooked in a conventional oven and tasted extra fresh!

My absolute favorite part about this countertop oven is that it doesn’t need to preheat, so we’re talking about cutting out 15 or so minutes just waiting for the oven to heat up. And for this particular recipe, you can easily dice all your veggies and tofu ahead of time and simply turn on your oven and steam cook! You can also toast, warm, bake/reheat, broil/grill, and cook pizza- again, all without preheating! Pretty fantastic, eh?

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 20 min

Ingredients

  • 16 oz cauliflower rice (you can make your own from a head of cauliflower, but I bought mine already pearled)
  • 1.5 tbsp sesame oil

Sriracha Peanut Crispy Tofu

  • 1 block super firm tofu, drained, pressed, cubed
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 4 tbsp arrowroot starch/powder
  • 2 tbsp liquid aminos (or Tamari soy sauce)
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sriracha chili sauce

Sriracha Peanut Sauce

  • 1/4 cup liquid aminos (or Tamari soy sauce)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp sriracha chili sauce (you can use less for less heat)
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp lime juice

Caramelized Veggies

  • 1 bunch baby bok choy, chopped if desired
  • 1 red onion, chopped into large pieces
  • 8 oz shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 medium zucchini, diced into medium pieces
  • 4-8 oz broccoli florets
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Toppings

  • chopped peanuts
  • fresh grated ginger
  • green onions

Instructions

  1. Drain and press your tofu, then cut into cubes (if not purchesed cubed). Add the tofu to a gallon zip loc bag with the sesame oil and arrowroot starch. Shake the tofu around until the pieces are well coated 

  2. Whisk together the rest of the tofu marinade: liquid aminios (or Tamari), sriracha sauce, maple syrup, and melted peanut butter then add to the bag and shake the tofu around until the pieces are well coated and then add to the SHARP SUPERHEATED STEAM COUNTERTOP OVEN crisper tray covered with foil. Turn on your oven to the Broil/Grill setting at 485 degrees and set the time to 30 minutes. Broil your tofu while you prepare the veggies next, flipping the pieces after about 10 minutes

  3. Chop and dice your veggies, add to the SHARP SUPERHEATED STEAM COUNTERTOP OVEN broiling pan, drizzle with olive oil and place in the oven

  4. While your veggies and tofu are broiling, heat a large skillet on your stovetop to medium and add 1.5 tbsp sesame oil. Add your cauliflower pearls and sautee while your veggies cook tossing occassionally

  5. Make your peanut sauce by blending all ingredients together 

  6. Turn the skillet heat down to low, add the peanut sauce to the skillet with the cauliflower rice and stir to combine

  7. Check on your tofu and veggies after about 20 minutes and keep cooking if needed, but shouldn’t take longer than 20-30 minutes

  8. Spoon some of the cauliflower rice in your bowls, top with veggies and tofu and then garnish with freshly grated ginger, chopped peanuts and diced green onion

Notes

** Sriracha peanut tofu and sauce adapted from Minimalist Baker

** note: you may wish to add your baby bok choy in about halfway through broiling the rest of the veggies

Now while I have been indulging in salads all winter long and bulking them up with some kind of grain and winter-ish veggie (and loved it), I'm really excited to lighten it up a bit, hit that detox button and make way for more of those super vibrant, airy fruits and veggies.

Pitaya Poached Pears with Coconut Whip + Chocolate

So I just want to start this poached pear post by admiring this photo! I am so so happy with how it turned out. I finally upgraded my gear and I think that it makes a huge difference. Ok, so now let's get to these gorgeous pears. I was inspired by my foodie friend Minako from 365CleanEats to make this Pitaya Poached Pear recipe. I had some pears leftover from my Roasted Butternut Squash + Pear Arugula Salad, so this easy dessert recipe was perfect. I don't know about you, but I've never poached pears before, and I was so surprised at how simple it is. Now I know you might be wondering, "Are these pink pears?! Like where do I get pink pears?!" Well friend, that's where the fun part comes in. Through the poaching process you can turn the pears the same color

Chocolate Hazelnut Pop Tarts

Hi Everyone! My name is Laura, and I am the creator of the food blog, PheNOMenal Phoods. I am so excited to be writing a guest post for Healthy Little Vittles! When I saw that Gina was looking for guest writers a few months ago, I reached out to her right away because I am a huge fan. I have loved every recipe of hers that I have tried, and some of them are in my family’s regular weeknight meal rotation! You guys, vegan and gluten-free baking is hard. I’m sure you all know that by now, but it really does take a lot of experimentation to get it right. When you do get it right, though, it is so gratifying. A lot of the ingredients that are available for this type of baking are either over-the-top expensive, or you just have no idea what it is that you are
