makes: 4 servings
prep time: 10 min
cook time: 30 min

  • 150g or 3/4 cup of black or brown rice
  • 150g of edamame beans
  • 200g of marinated tofu (I used our favourite:  Soyco Japanese Teriyaki tofu)
  • 2 cups of kale, chopped
  • 2 carrots, spiralised
  • Pickled ginger
  • sesame seeds

For the sauce:

  • 30g of cashews, soaked overnight or boiled for about 30 minutes
  • 2 tbsp of sesame oil
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water


Rince the rice and start cooking it as described on the package, and boil the cashews (if not soaked overnight).

Chop the vegies and spiralise the carrot. Now steam the edamame for about 3-4 minutes, followed by the kale for about 2 minutes. I use my steamer on top of the boiling pot to be efficient.

Now chop the tofu and fry them (if you like your dish hot) or serve it cold.

To make the sauce, mix the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Add more water if you like a runnier sauce.

Now assemble the bowl: add the rice at the bottom. Top with all the ingredients and the sauce. Add more lemon juice if you want to, and sprinkle with some sesame seeds. Yum!!
