Viral Tofu Salmon & Rice Bowl

The salmon & rice bowl from @emilymariko took over the internet, and I was super keen to try it but wasn’t so sure how to replace the salmon. That’s until I saw the tofu queen @sezzybrown shredding tofu all over her page. It has such a good texture and works perfectly for this recipe!

Cam even said it might be his favourite way to eat tofu now ????

This recipe is the result of how we can get so much inspo online to make everyday life tastier and healthier, and I absolutely love it! Make sure to give this one a go because it’s really a fantastic flavour combo, very nourishing and super fun to make!
