Cook rice
  • Add stock powder, Cumin-Turmeric Spice Blend, 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter, 1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 cups) water and 1/8 tsp (1/4 tsp) salt to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Once boiling, add rice, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. 
  • Remove from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Prepare and marinate tofu
  • Meanwhile, pat tofu dry with paper towels. Cut tofu in half parallel to the cutting board. (NOTE: You will have two square tofu steaks per block.) Using a fork, poke tofu all over.
  • Add tofu, Shawarma Spice Blend, half the tahini sauce and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
Finish prep
  • Thinly slice cucumber.
  • Cut tomato into 1/4-inch pieces. 
  • Quarter, then remove core from peppers.
  • Add spicy mayo and remaining tahini sauce to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine, then set aside.
  • Add peppers and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then set aside. 
Make salad
  • Add half the vinegar (use all for 4 ppl), 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) sugar and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  • Add cucumber and tomato, then toss to coat. Set aside.
Grill tofu and peppers
  • Add tofu to one side of the grill. Close lid and grill tofu, flipping once, until grill marked, 4-5 min per side.
  • Add peppers to other side of the grill. Close lid and grill until lightly charred and tender, 4-6 min per side.
  • Once cooked, transfer tofu and peppers to a plate. (TIP: If peppers are too charred, carefully remove the skin.)
Finish and serve
  • Cut grilled peppers into 1/2-inch pieces. 
  • Thinly slice tofu.
  • Fluff rice with a fork. Stir in grilled peppers and any juices from the plate.
  • Divide rice, tofu and veggies between plates.
