Sweet and Salty Tofu Bowls are loaded with delicious flavor. They are easy to make and have the perfect balance between sweet and salty!
So I have this little obsession with this sweet and salty tofu bowl. It is true, I am addicted to this bowl.
I created this dish so that I could enjoy, at home, one of my favorite tofu bowls that I get when dining out. At home is so much easier, cheaper and often times safer!
So I took the concept and made it my own. The original dish has carrots and cauliflower in it, but I opted for broccoli only.
Oh yes and the addition of green onions and sesame seeds…that is all me 🙂
One of the things I love most about this sweet and salty tofu bowl is that I can prep it in a double batch and have delicious lunches all week long!
Tasty! Easy! Lunches!
That sounds like a plan!
I used SunButter as the “butter” in my sauce. We love SunButter at my house. If you have another seed butter or nut butter you prefer, go for it.
Make it your own!

Cut tofu into cubes. Set aside.
Boil broccoli for 4-5 minutes or until al dente. Set aside.
Warm 1 T of avocado oil in a medium frying pan. Gently saute tofu cubes until golden brown.
