Healthy Teriyaki Tofu & Veggie Protein Bowl
Recipe type: Lunch or Dinner
Serves: 1
Bowl meals lend themselves to all sorts of fun ingredients and nutrient-rich combinations.They serve up an easy way to get more whole grains into your family's diet as well as protein (here I used a hard boiled egg and tofu) and lots of crunchy vegetables. This recipe is vegetarian, but you could certainly add grilled chicken, salmon, or lean beef. You could easily double, triple, or quadruple this recipe.
  • ¾ cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for sprinkling on top
  • 1 tablespoon roasted pumpkin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons low-sodium teriyaki sauce, divided
  • 1 hard boiled egg, shelled
  • 2 ounces ready-to-eat teriyaki marinated tofu
  • ½ cup trimmed sugar snap peas
  • ⅓ cup cooked shelled edamame
  • ¼ small orange bell pepper, cut into ¼-inch dice
  1. Stir together the rice, cilantro, pumpkin seeds, and 1 teaspoon of the teriyaki sauce in the bowl you plan to eat from. Arrange the tofu, egg, sugar snap peas, edamame, and bell pepper on top.
  2. Drizzle with the remaining teriyaki sauce and extra cilantro. {If you're not a lover of cilantro, leave it out.}
