How to Prepare Spicy Sofritas Black Bean Bowls [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

  1. Add chipotles, jalapeño, garlic, salsa, red onion, and lime to a blender or food processor. Combine until smooth (adding water if needed). Taste and add salt if needed. Set aside until ready to use.
  2. Drain and press tofu. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add tofu to the pan and break it apart with a potato masher or wooden spoon. Sauté for 1-2 minutes, or until tofu begins to brown slightly. Add sauce and black beans to the tofu and stir to combine. Allow to cook for an additional 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. While the sofritas is cooking, peel and pit avocados. Put in a bowl and mash with a fork. Add lime juice, red onion, salt and cilantro (to taste) and stir to combine.
  4. To assemble bowls, add 1/2 cup of rice to the bowl, followed by 1/2 cup sofritas mixture and a dollop of guacamole. Top bowls with additional cilantro and serve with a lime wedge.
