Meal Prep Sweet Chili Tofu Bowls with brown rice, garlic, red bell pepper, and carrots.
A delicious vegan or vegetarian meal!
These sweet chili tofu bowls are my lunch for the week and I am so excited to share!
As a busy work at home mom, I almost never take time to make myself a nutritious lunch.
One of my goals lately has been to really crack down on my eating and try to make it more clean and nutritious.
Lunch is one of my downfalls in this area.
When the baby is fussing and throwing food at me and I have a million things on my to do list, it usually just ends up being a sandwich in chips.
Not the most unhealthy meal, but also not the greatest nutritionally.
Enter meal prep!
I got these super cute 3 cup pyrex dishes last weekend to make 4 prepped ahead lunches each week.
This will not only save me time, but money too.
I plan to share what I’m eating each week for other vegans or vegetarians who struggle with lunch as well.
These sweet chili tofu bowls are PACKED full of flavor.
Crispy tofu, sweet bell pepper and carrots, and heart healthy brown rice in a sweet chili sauce.
I am still playing around with which store bought sweet chili sauce is my favorite, so if you have one that you love please let me know your recommendations in the comments below!
After you press the tofu, you will pan fry it until crispy.
I normally oven bake my tofu (see this recipe), but pan frying was a nice change of pace this time.
Honestly I love it both ways (I love tofu!)
I went with bell peppers and carrots for the veggies in this recipe.
Carrots might sound like an odd choice, but it works!
They’re also super affordable and one of my absolute favorite vegetables for their versatility.
This recipe made exactly 4 perfect servings.
Robbie tasted a bite and loved it, so I will be planning to make it for us for dinner one night in the next few weeks.
If you don’t have a rice cooker, I highly recommend the investment.
I’ve used my $40 rice cooker 2 times this week already.
Once I got the hang of the cook times and the difference between white and brown rice it has been such a time saver!
