How to prep these Spicy Peanut Tofu Bowls
These bowls are LITERALLY my newest obsession. They are the perfect amount of spice and comfort in one little bowl. And it doesn't hurt that they are extremely easy to make!
Cook up your rice - easy enough. And while your rice is cooking, prep the tofu.
The prep for these bowls is very minimal. Press the tofu, to get some of the liquid out. Cut up some peppers (I like those mini sweet ones, but you can use bell peppers too), some green onions and garlic and get to cooking.
TSV TIP: If you don't have a tofu press, just place your drained tofu between 2 plates.
Add your tofu to your sauce and crumble it up. That's it!
How to serve Spicy Peanut Tofu Bowls
I like to serve my bowls with lime wedges, green onions and thai chilies (if you want an extra kick).
These bowls make the best leftovers too - hello, meal prep heaven! You are going to be scraping the bottom of the bowl once you try this one out. Trust me!
