Tofu Wasabi Bowl
Back many years ago, when I first became a vegetarian, the hardest place to get a decent meal was a seafood restaurant. I remember dining on a measly side of overcooked broccoli once! Happily, times seem to have changed.
I have become quite addicted to this Tofu Wasabi Bowl from the seafood restaurant, Pacific Catch, in Corte Madera, and often order it to go. The marinated and grilled tofu is really fantastic! Moist, meaty, superfresh, and in no way bland, I love this stuff! It's the kind of thing I crave when feeling depleted and in need of a heavy dose of protein.
While this dish isn't exactly on the menu, the marinated grilled tofu is featured in a sandwich, along with shiitake mushrooms, mango, salsa, avocado and teriyaki sauce. It's also offered as part of the Teriyaki Bowls, with asparagus, shiitake musrooms, grilled bok choy, sesame seeds, house made sake teriyaki sauce served over pineapple fried rice.
But neither of them compares to the tofu with the superb Wasabi Bowl. Sticky sushi rice with the a delicious soy-wasabi sauce that is perfectly hot (in my opinion), with wakame salad, sliced avocado, daikon sprouts, sesame seeds, pickled ginger and shredded nori. I can eat this whole huge plate of food quite happily.
Did I mention the tofu is really good?
