Step by Step Instructions
Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C). Peel and cube the sweet potato and add to a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper and toss together until everything is lightly coated. Transfer to a parchment lined baking tray and place into the oven to bake for 35 minutes.
Add your broccoli to a bowl and then add in the olive oil, salt, and pepper and toss together so that all the pieces are lightly coated. Then place onto a parchment-lined baking tray.
When the sweet potato has been baking for 20 minutes, add the broccoli into the oven to bake for the remaining 15 minutes. When your sweet potato is baking and your broccoli is ready to go into the oven, put your tofu on to press. You can use a tofu press or place the tofu onto a plate wrapped in paper towel; place a heavy item on top of the wrapped tofu to help soak out any excess liquid. Leave the tofu to press for 20 minutes.
While waiting, cook quinoa. Once the tofu is done, cut into cubes. Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the tofu cubes. Fry until lightly browned, gently turning the tofu so it doesn’t crumble. Add in all the spices and soy sauce. Remove from heat and set aside.
When everything is cooked, it’s time to serve: add the quinoa to the middle of the bowls and stack up the roasted sweet potato and broccoli along the sides, along with some tofu. Add some cilantro, sliced cherry tomatoes, and sliced avocado.
