Spicy Tofu Goddess Bowl

It has been a long day with the one year old, so this is going to be a short post. Tonight we had our favorite Goddess bowl. Quick, easy, healthy, delicious and satisfying. If you are feeling a little less Asian, skip the dressing it calls for and add your favorite. Sometimes I like to use Eco-Goddess's Goddess dressing http://www.eco-goddess.com/. It is so delicious! We have also had it with roasted garlic balsamic vinaigrette and avocado ranch. Not together, of course, but hmmm...that might actually work.

Spicy Tofu
Serves 6

1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
1/4 cup hot chili-garlic sauce or hot chili oil (use less because this makes it really spicy!)
2 tbs dark sesame oil
1 block extra-firm tofu, drained, pressed and cubed

1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs fresh ginger, minced
1 tsp hot chili-garlic sauce or hot chili oil
1 cup cooked brown rice or quinoa
3 1/2 cups mixed baby greens
1 bunch swiss chard or kale, steamed
1 pkg sprouts
2 carrots, peeled
1 cucumber, sliced
1 avocado, peeled and sliced
1 tbs sesame seeds (I was out of black so I used white)

To make Spicy Tofu: Whisk together soy sauce, chili sauce and sesame oil in bowl. Dip tofu in chili mixture. Cook on medium-high heat for 10 minutes, or until browned, turning once.

To make Salad: Whisk together soy sauce, lemon juice, ginger and chili sauce in bowl. Mound rice or quinoa in bowls. Top with greens. Shave strips of carrots over top with vegetable peeler. Top with tofu, cucumber, sprouts and avocado. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve with sauce.


  1. This was my favorite dish of the week! Something about the combination of tofu, salad, and rice makes me super happy and content! Thanks for cooking everyday this week babe!

  2. OK...I've decided you should just move your happy ass back here and be my personal chef! :)
