In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Cut the tofu into strips and wrap the pieces in a clean dish towel. Place a heavy object on top to squeeze them for 30 minutes.
  2. In a large container, combine the ingredients of the tofu marinade (beer, orange juice, rice vinegar, tamari sauce, garlic and ginger). After 30 minutes of pressing, add the tofu strips to the marinade and marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. While the tofu marinates, cook the rice according to packaging instructions. In a small bowl, massage the chopped kale with the tamari and sesame oil. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, massage the chopped kale with the tamari and sesame oil. Set aside.
  5. When the 30 minutes are up, remove the tofu strips without discarding the marinade. Set the marinade aside.
  6. Heat a little olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the strips of tofu 3 minutes on each side, or until desired coloring.
  7. Assemble your bowls. Start by mixing ½ cup to 1 cup of the cooked rice with ⅓ of the remaining tofu marinade. Then, place the rice at the bottom of your bowls, and continue with tofu, edamames, kale, cucumbers, carrots, avocado, green onions, sesame seeds and coriander. Sprinkle with one or two tablespoons of the remaining marinade and serve.
