Ingredients

  • 2" piece fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar

For the Sushi Bowls

Instructions

Make the Tofu

  • To make the marinade, combine the ginger, garlic, maple syrup, sesame oil, soy sauce, and vinegar in your blender or food processor. Puree until smooth.
  • Oven Directions for the Tofu: Preheat the oven to 375F. In a large bowl with high sides, toss together the tofu and the marinade. Set aside to marinate for 10 minutes, then drain off any excess marinade. Toss the marinated tofu with the cornstarch in the same bowl. Arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake for 30 minutes. No need to flip, unless you really want to.
  • Air Fryer Directions for the Tofu: In a large bowl with high sides, toss together the tofu and the marinade. Set aside to marinate for 10 minutes, then drain off any excess marinade. Toss the marinated tofu with the cornstarch in the same bowl, then pour into the basket of your air fryer. Cook on 370 for 15 minutes, shaking after 8 minutes.

Make the Sushi Bowls

  • Divide the sushi rice between your bowls. Top with the tofu, avocado, green onion, carrots, cucumbers, seaweed snack pieces, and pickled ginger. Sprinkle on the cashews, if you're using them, then top it all off with the green onion.
