Teriyaki-Glazed Butternut Squash Buddha Bowl

You know the easy + crispy baked tofu recipe I shared a couple weeks ago? Well, it’s back in the form of this lovely bowl of all buddha bowls. We’re talking teriyaki-glazed butternut squash, sesame-flavored mushrooms, crispy tofu, whole grains and, of course, avocado! This is where it’s at, my friends.

This meal is inspired by the ancient grains bowl I ordered at True Food Kitchen. I got this bowl last time I was there and it rocked my face off so much I decided to make a quick and easy version at home. So, here it is!

At True Food, they make a delicious miso glaze for their ancient grains bowl but I decided to go with store bought teriyaki to make it easier for home cooks like us. The teriyaki sauce I used for this recipe is Kikkoman brand and it is made of all-natural ingredients.

  • Loaded with 7 grams of fiber per serving
  • Loaded with plant-based protein
  • Full of Vitamins A, C & D
  • Also full of iron and calcium
  • 100% delicious and satisfying

Teriyaki-Glazed Butternut Squash Buddha Bowl
 
Author:
Serves: 2-3
Ingredients
  • ½ cup mixed whole grains (I used a quinoa, buckwheat, and millet mix)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups butternut squash, pre-cubed
  • ¼ cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 recipe Easy + Crispy Baked Tofu (see link above and below)
  • 3 cups baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1.5 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1-2 avocados
  • sesame seeds (to garnish)
  • chives or green onions (to garnish)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (F).
  2. Rinse grains before boiling and remove any non-grain particles.
  3. Prepare Easy + Crispy Baked Tofu (recipe link above and below this recipe).
  4. Add ½ cup rinsed grains, 1 cup water and a pinch of salt to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer and cook for approximately 20 minutes or until grains are soft.
  5. While the grains are simmering, add butternut squash and teriyaki sauce to half of a 9x13 baking sheet and mix to combine. *Note: make sure to line the baking sheet with aluminum foil because the teriyaki sauce will burn to the pan some.
  6. On the other half of the same baking sheet, add the mushrooms and season with soy sauce, sesame oil, and garlic clove. Mix to combine.
  7. Add both baking sheets to the oven and bake at 400 F for 25-30 minutes, or until butternut squash is fork tender and tofu is browned.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
  9. To serve the bowls, first add the grains and then add the butternut squash, mushrooms, tofu, and avocado slices.
  10. Garnish with sesame seeds and chives or green onion slices.
