Ingredients

1 pkg firm tofu, cut into 1/2” cubes

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup AP flour

1/4 cup avocado oil

salt and pepper

2 cups raw veg of choice: peppers, spinach, celery, broccoli, cut bite sized

1/2 cup black beans

1 cup leftover rice

1/4 cup sauce of choice, like buffalo or bbq

Ranch dressing to taste

Method

In a large mixing bowl gently toss the cubed tofu in the cornstarch, AP flour, salt and pepper until well combined. Set aside.

Preheat a cast iron until hot over med high flame. Add to the skillet the avocado oil and heat until shimmering. Fry the tofu in batches on all sides until golden brown and crispy, about 5 – 8 minutes per batch. Rest the fried tofu on kitchen or paper towels while frying the remaining batches.

Once all the tofu is fried, add your sauce of choice to a large mixing bowl and toss the fried tofu in the sauce until well coated. Set aside.

Divide the leftover rice, raw veggies, and black beans into salad bowls. Toss with ranch dressing until well combined, if desired, or serve the dressing on the side. Top the burrito bowl with the fried tofu and serve immediately.
