This gorgeous peanut butter baked tofu Buddha bowl recipe is sponsored by Bacofoil®. I received Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil and Bacofoil® All Purpose Zipper Bags, plus a contribution towards the ingredients for this recipe. Thank you Bacofoil® for the support! Bacofoil® is a household name with over 50 years’ experience and their aim is to make life in the kitchen that little bit easier, helping people to create great food. Bacofoil® set me a challenge to use their fabulous All Purpose Zipper Bags to create a healthy, vegan marinade. The All Purpose Zipper Bags are perfect for this marinade; they will keep it fresh while the seal will stop the marinade from leaking and This peanut butter baked tofu buddha bowl recipe is just perfect for any day of the week! It is very simple, full of flavour and has loads of crunchy, fresh veggies. This oozes with health because it has cherry tomatoes, cucumber, sweet potato fries, carrots and of course, the main star, which is tofu marinated in peanut butter sauce and baked to perfection. I picked tofu because it has the amazing ability to absorb the flavours of the ingredients it is cooked with, while also being high in protein and incredibly versatile. I use it in salads, soups, stir-fries and curries. The bonus of this recipe is that it uses Non-Stick Kitchen Foil, meaning the tofu doesn’t stick to the baking tray.

Before we get to the recipe, let’s talk about these two fabulous products which you can check out on the Bacofoil® website.Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil:
It’s great for grilling, baking, roasting and even freezing! It’s non-stick, so nothing will get stuck to the foil and food will always lift off easily, meaning it won’t get 'damaged' and will stay Instagram beautiful ;). And because there’s no mess, there’s the added benefit of saving on the scrubbing when you are washing up! There’s also no need to use oil or butter either, so it’s the healthier option too. It comes in hassle-free, 100% recyclable 5m, 10m and 20m lengths and is made in Britain.Bacofoil® All Purpose Zipper Bags
These are multi-use and multi-purpose food bags which can be used for thanks to the super tight zip seal - think frozen smoothie packs, baby food, marinades, dressings and sauces.

They are tough and tear proof thanks to the great quality and the bags are completely reusable; simply wash and reuse for less waste.
