This easy vegetarian trio of roasted cauliflower, asian baked tofu and brown rice is healthy and satisfying. It takes a little preparation but once that’s done it’s smooth sailing.
The rice takes the longest amount of time so start by cooking up 1 cup rice using the Saveur’s Perfect Brown Rice Method). Note, I used a brown rice and wild rice mix. The wild rice does not do as well with this method but the brown rice was perfect.
