Roasted Cauliflower Rice Bowl with Tofu and Veggies – a quick and healthy sheet-pan dinner with your choice of protein, tofu or chicken. Vegan, gluten-free! |


  • 16 ounces riced cauliflower ( about 4 cups)
  • 2 medium zucchini, cubed ( or one small sweet potato or butternut)
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, quartered
  • ¼ an onion, diced
  • 8 ounces tofu or chicken, cubed
  • Drizzle olive oil, generous pinch salt, granulated garlic ( or one clove minced)


Additional toppings : scallions, avocado, Braggs or Smoked Shoyu, Sriracha, Asian seaweed/sesame spice mix like Furikake or Gomasio,  seeds (sesame, hemp, sunflower or pumpkin – for texture)


pre heat oven to 425F

Make the marinade in a small bowl by whisking hot water with miso until smooth, then add the rest of the ingredients- sesame oil, vinegar, salt, sesame seeds.

On an extra large, parchment-lined sheet pan ( or two smaller pan) place the riced cauliflower, piled no higher than ½ inch, then the veggies in sections along with the tofu (and or chicken). Season the tofu ( or chicken) with a little salt, then spoon the marinade over top, coating well, then spoon the remaining marinade over the veggies ( not the cauliflower). Drizzle the cauliflower with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper and granulated garlic (or toss in a finely minced clove of garlic).

Place in the oven for 20 minutes, giving the veggies and cauliflower a quick toss, then bake 10-more minutes or until desired doneness.

Divide among two bowls.

Scatter with scallions, avocado, Asian spice, seeds,  and drizzle with a little Braggs Liquid aminos (or smoked shoyu soy sauce is nice) and sriracha hot sauce.
