Sesame Tempeh Buddha Bowl (Vegan)

This Sesame Tempeh Buddha Bowl is inspired by tempeh—the traditional fermented Indonesian soy and grain cake. It’s filled to the brim with brown rice, crunchy radishes, baby kale, asparagus, mushrooms, and peppers. And topped with a tahini ginger dressing for bold flavor.

To make Sesame Roasted Tempeh, cube tempeh, and marinate in soy sauce, sesame oil, sriracha sauce, agave syrup, garlic, and ginger for at least one hour before roasting in oven.

Arrange ingredients in a large, individual-sized serving bowl.
Drizzle with Tahini Ginger Dressing.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds and enjoy!
