These Sesame Ginger Tofu Meal Prep Bowls are so flavorful and will keep you feeling full all afternoon!


  • 3/4 cup rice, or grain of your choice
  • 2 teaspoons oil of your choice
  • 2 cups diced red pepper
  • 2 cups diced purple cabbage
  • 2 cups small broccoli florets
  • 2 teaspoons low sodium tamari, or soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
  • 16 ounces tofu, pressed and diced into bite size pieces
  • Green onion and toasted sesame seeds for garnish, if desired

Sesame Ginger Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup low sodium tamari, or soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, or honey
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon grated garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons corn starch or arrowroot


  1. Cook rice according to package directions and divide evenly into meal prep containers once finished cooking.  Heat a large pan over medium heat and add oil, all the veggies, tamari and garlic and ginger powder.  Cook veggies until just softened, 7-10 minutes.  Remove veggies from the pan and divide evenly into your meal prep containers.
  2. If necessary add another teaspoon of oil and all of the tofu.  I like to add a little more tamari or salt to give the tofu a little flavor while it cooks.  Cook tofu until browned, 10-12 minutes.
  3. While tofu is cooking, add all Sesame Ginger Sauce ingredients to a small jar and mix until combined.  Once tofu is browned add in the sauce and cook until sauce is thickened and coats the back of a spoon.  Divide tofu evenly into meal prep containers.  Top each finished bowl with sliced green onion and toasted sesame seeds.
