Are you looking for an easy and flavorful meal that’s perfect for a busy weeknight meal? With a little effort and the quick convenience of Tilda® Peri Peri Rice, you can create a delicious and satisfying meal in no time!

Way beyond basic, this rice bowl is packed with big flavor and lots of great texture. The light peppery flavor of the rice pairs perfectly with the charred corn and roasted red peppers. And a dollop of hummus adds a creamy goodness that can’t be beat. Topped with the crispy tofu, it’s a complete meal that your whole family will love.

Of course if you aren’t a huge tofu fan, you can use grilled chicken or pork instead. But, I really think you should give the tofu a try. The texture and flavor is really amazing in this dish.

Peri Peri Rice Bowl With Crispy Tofu

Prep Time 3 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes



  • 16 oz super firm tofu
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tbsp peanut butter powder


  • 2 pouches TILDA® READY TO HEAT PERI PERI RICE - cooked according to package directions
  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 2 ears of corn - grilled and removed from cob
  • 1/2 cup roasted red pepper - sliced
  • Peri Peri Sauce - if desired



  • For the baked tofu, start by slicing the tofu block into 1-inch cubes.
  • Place the cubes on a clean tea towel and then cover with a second towel. Add a heavy pan or weight on top and allow to sit for 15 minutes in order to help press out as much moisture as possible.
  • Preheat oven to 400º F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Put the pressed cubes into a large bowl and add the olive oil and soy sauce then mix to coat.
  • Sprinkle the corn starch and peanut butter powder over the cubes and toss to coat.
  • Transfer the coated cubes to the prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes, tossing halfway through the bake time.


  • To assemble the bowl, divide the rice and spoon into 4 bowls.
  • Top with 2 tablespoons of hummus, 1/4 cup of arugula, 2 tablespoons of roasted red pepper and the grilled corn.
  • Add the crispy tofu and drizzle with peri peri sauce, if desired.
  • Serve and enjoy!
