  • 4 individual chipotle peppers in canned adobo sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of the adobo sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup fresh tomato salsa
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • a pinch of coconut sugar
  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 5 limes
  • 2 handfuls of fresh cilantro chopped
  • 16 ounces extra firm tofu
  • 1 cup black beans rinsed and drained
  • 2 large avocados
  • 1/2 cup minced red onion
  • queso fresco and extra cilantro for serving
  1. Make the rice: Cook the rice according to the directions on the packet. Once it is cooked, add in the juice of 2 limes and a handful of chopped cilantro
  2. Pop the chipotle peppers, adobo sauce, salsa, oil, salt, and sugar into a blender and pulse until it becomes smooth
  3. Slice the block of tofu into about 10 slices and press with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. Heat some oil over medium high heat and stir fry the tofu until it's starting to get a little bit golden. Once slightly golden, use a whisk to mash and scramble the tofu into small bits
  4. Once scrambled, add in the chipotle sauce, with ½ cup water, and the black beans. Simmer for 15 mins and then remove from heat
  5. For the guacamole mash the avocados in a medium bowl, add in the juice from 3 limes, the rest of the cilantro and the onion. Add some salt if you feels it needs it (I usually don't) Stir well to combine
  6. To serve: Pop some rice into the bowl, top with the chipotle tofu mixture, a dollop of guacamole and some queso fresco. Enjoy
