BBQ Tofu Bowl

BBQ Tofu Bowl

This BBQ Tofu Bowl is sure to have you thinking about plant based eating differently. It's loaded with color, textures, and nutrients while being super tasty!
 

While I personally do not suggest adopting a completely plant based eating style, I do 100% advise including plant focused meals into your diet regularly. By occasionally skipping meat + cheese you have more room for nutrient + fiber rich, lower calorie ingredients like colorful veggies, seeds, and seeds. 

Ingredients:  

This makes roughly 4 portions. It's a great meal to make the entire batch and package up extra portions for the next days lunches! 

+ 1 Block Extra Firm Tofu (I use a pressed, sprouted block)
+ 1/4 cup BBQ Sauce (I use Hot Honey Chipotle -pictured- by RedDuck)
+ 6 cups Greens ( I use Kale + Spinach + Arugula)
+ 1 cup Kraut ( I used Cleveland Kraut's Roasted Garlic) 
+ 1 Butternut Squash, peeled + cubed
+ 1/2 cup Seeds ( I used GoRaw's Sprouted Simple mix) 
+ 1 tbsp Walnut Oil (or any oil)
+ 1 Avocado

Instructions:

Heat oven to 375. Toss the squash with oil and bake for 45 minutes, until tender and golden. Meanwhile, cube the tofu and toss with BBQ sauce. Place on a separate parchment lined tray and bake ~25 minutes, depending on how firm you like your tofu. While the squash + tofu bake, prep the rest of your ingredients: chop greens, slice avocado, get your bowls/tupperware out... okay there really isn't that much prep! :)  Assemble bowls by divvying up the greens into 4 portions, topping with a scoop of squash, tofu, and kraut. Add some avo slices and sprinkle with seeds. 

Enjoy!!
