  • 2 c rice cooked
  • 1 block tofu pressed and cubed
  • 2 c sweet potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 2 c broccoli florets
  • 1 c onion wedges
  • oil spray
  • sauce your choice


  • To prep for your sweet potato bowl, you will press the tofu for 10-12 minutes, turning the knobs on your pressing every 3-4 minutes. While the tofu is pressing peel and cube sweet potatoes, trim broccoli florets and cut into into bite sized wedges. 
  • Once your tofu has been pressed, cube the tofu into small bite sized pieces.
  • Place cubed tofu and sweet potatoes into their air fryer basket. Give the food pieces a spray of oil. Cook for 14 minutes at 380 degrees F.
  • When your air fryer indicates that you have 7 minutes left, open the air fryer and gently shake the basket. Put the broccoli florets and onion pieces into the air fryer basket and give another spritz of oil. Cook for the remaining 7 minutes.  (Note be sure to watch the ingredients in the last few minutes. Some air fryer models may not take a long to cook!)
  • Remove ingredients from air fryer and divide equally onto 4 plates with rice.  Top with diced cabbage for garnish. Elevate the taste with your favorite sauce: Coconut aminos, Buddha Bowl Sauce or BBQ sauce. ENJOY the sweet potato bowl!
