For this easy dinner recipe, we've taken inspiration from the popular Vietnamese banh mi sandwich, but lost the bun to make room for one of our favorite whole grains: black (aka forbidden) rice. To make these healthy grain bowls vegetarian, simply use additional tamari in place of the fish sauce. Source: EatingWell Magazine, June 2019

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine rice, water and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer, cover and cook until the rice is tender, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, mix oil, tamari, fish sauce (or more tamari) and honey in a large bowl. Add tofu and toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature, stirring occasionally.

  • Whisk vinegar, sugar and the remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Add carrot and daikon and let stand for 15 minutes. Drain and discard liquid.

  • Divide the rice, tofu, marinated vegetables and cabbage among 4 bowls. Serve topped with herbs, Sriracha mayo and jalapeño, if desired.
