  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 8 oz. fresh spinach sautéed with garlic and olive oil

  5. Remove tofu from bowl and add to air fryer basket, leaving all marinade in bowl. Cook tofu for 15 minutes, shaking basket every 5 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, add romanesco, carrots, and bell pepper to bowl with marinade and mix well every few minutes.
  7. Once tofu is done, remove from air fryer and set aside. Then add vegetables to air fryer basket, again leaving marinade in bowl. Cook vegetables for 10 minutes, giving the basket a good shake halfway through cook time.
  8. In a large serving bowl - begin to build your Buddha Bowl. First add cooked quinoa, then spread the cooked veggies evenly. Next add the cooked spinach, and finally the tofu. Pour over remaining marinade and garnish with sesame seeds. Enjoy!
