  • the toppings: Use the largest non-stick pan you own. Heat over medium heat with 1 tp of oil. Saute brussel sprouts for 1 to 2 minutes. Then move to one side of the pan so you can continue to cook with the remaining vegetables.  Place each veggie in distinct sections of the pan so you can safely sauté and season them separately while cooking everything in the same pan.

  • the finishing sauce: Combine all ingredients in a bowl to whisk or small food processor to blend
  • the assembly: Add rice as the base, then pile on each veggie one layer at a time with the tofu on top. Then drizzle the sauce. Finally, crown with chopped cucumbers and avocado on top.
