If you’ve been following us for awhile, you know that we LOVE all things easy, healthy, and meat-free. When we find a recipe that fits all three, and is vegan to boot, we can’t help but love it.

That’s why we are bringing you this Smoked Tofu and Hummus Buddha Bowl.

The Magic of Turmeric

If you’re just here for a quick, vegan lunch recipe, then you might be tempted to skip the turmeric in the recipe. I think you should keep it in. Obviously, it’s beautiful, and tasty, but what you might not know is that it’s widely praised for its health benefits.

The most common health benefit associated with turmeric is anti-inflammation, which comes from the curcumin in the turmeric. It has also been credited with preventing heart disease, diabetes, alzheimers, and arthritis, as well as clearing up your skin. However, these benefits are a little less scientifically proven.

Either way, turmeric rice is the perfect, colourful base for this buddha bowl and the health benefits are a nice bonus.

Watch this Buddha Bowl (and a few others) come to life on Youtube.

  1. Looks delicious! Where to find this “smoked” tofu now?

    1. Thank you! It should be available in any bigger supermarket right next to the regular tofu.

  2. Checked local Walmart, King Soopers and Albertsons – no smoked tofu. Not at Amazon, either. Suggested substitution? Or how to prepare our own?

    1. Oh! Perhaps a local healthstore? Otherwise in that case I would suggest marinating the tofu first in your favourite flavours. A little oil mixed with herbs and spices – smoked paprika for example. Kind of squish/press the tofu into it in a small bowl, and let it soak up the flavours for a few hours :). That should do the trick!
