  • Knife
  • Small bowl
  • Grater
  • Small pot with a lid
  • Cup


  • 120 g Sushi rice
  • 2 tbsp Rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 ½ tbsp Tamari
  • 2 tbsp Toasted sesame seeds
  • 180 grams Firm tofu cut into cubes
  • ½ Large avocado peeled, stone removed, sliced
  • 1 Nori sheet chopped into thin strips
  • 1 Carrot grated
  • 2 tbsp Pickled sushi ginger
  • 4 tbsp Pickled red onions
  • ½ Cucumber finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Vegan yoghurt or vegan mayo
  • 1 tsp Sriracha
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Pepper


  • To make the rice marinade, combine rice vinegar, tamari and maple syrup in a cup. Set aside.
  • Rinse the rice until the water runs clear. Combine the rice with 250ml of water in a small pot. Bring the contents to boil, then turn the heat down to simmer and cover the pot with a lid. Once all the liquid has been absorbed (approx. 10 mins), add the marinade and 1 tbsp sesame seeds and stir until well-combined. Turn off the heat but keep the lid on for about 10 minutes. Allow the rice to fully cool down.
  • Spread tofu cubes on a lined baking tray and bake at 220c for about 20 minutes. They should be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
  • For the cucumber salad, mix yoghurt, sriracha, salt and pepper in a cup. Add cucumbers into a small bowl and mix with the yoghurt dressing.
  • Once the rice is cool, assemble your buddha bowl. Add rice, carrots, tofu, avocado, ginger, pickled onions, nori seaweed and cucumber salad. Top with remaining sesame seeds and enjoy!
