Tofu Rice Salad with Sweet Potatoes

This salad has great texture and wonderful flavor, with just a hint of sweetness from the sweet potatos and teriyaki sauce.  It’s a whole meal in a bowl!!

3 ½ cups cooked short grain brown rice
½ lb.  firm tofu, cut in 1” cubes
1 ½ cups sweet potatos, cut in 1” cubes
¾ cup snap peas or snow peas, thinly sliced
2 single green onions, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons bottled teriyaki sauce, (we use Trader Joe’s brand)
4 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted

¼ cup olive oil
1 tablespoon raspberry vinegar
¼ teaspoon curry powder
½ teaspoon granulated onion
1 teaspoon agave syrup
½ teaspoon sea salt

  • In a small oiled baking pan, toss tofu cubes with teriyaki sauce. Bake @350◦ for 10 minutes.
  • In a steamer cook the sweet potatos until just soft (avoid cooking them too long or they will break down in the salad.)
  • In a medium bowl toss together the cooked rice, sweet potatos, tofu, snap peas, green onions and pine nuts. Set aside.
  • Make dressing with a whisk or with a mixer. Pour dressing over rice mixture and toss gently until everything is well coated. This salad can be served at room temperature or heated slightly.

Serves: 4-6
