2 1/2 cups brown rice, cooked
1 1/4 cups firm tofu, cubed
garnish: cilantro + chopped peanuts

Sauce:
3 Tbsp peanut butter, salted / creamy
1 Tbsp white miso paste (optional – you could substitute with a splash of lime juice)
2 1/2 tsp agave syrup
3/4 cup water
2-3 tsp tamari or soy sauce (to taste)
optional: 3-4 dashes cayenne powder (for heat)

Optional veggies:
bean sprouts
carrots, chopped or shredded

Directions:

1. Mix up your sauce using a Vitamix or food processor – you want it to be nice and smooth.
