Bang Bang Tofu Bowl

Bang Bang Tofu Bowl


This meal prep bowl is super simple to make and has the most delicious creamy, tangy, and a little bit spicy sauce. It pairs perfectly with white sticky rice and any vegetable of your choosing! I had asparagus in my fridge so thats what I went with but some other great options would be steamed broccoli, sauteed kale, blanched green beans, or you could even enjoy the bowl cold and add fresh veggies like sliced cucumber or raw cabbage!


Recipe notes:

I've listed the bang bang sauce macros separately so if you don't have access to fava tofu you can use the sauce macros + firm regular tofu macros to get your accurate macros.


Recipe makes two servings

Macros per serving (using fava tofu):

482 cals - 10g fat - 58g carbs - 40g protein


Macros for bang bang sauce only (2 servings):

215 cals - 18g fat - 18g carbs - 3g protein



340g fava tofu 

1 tbsp tapioca flour or sub arrowroot flour or corn starch

2 tbsp vegan mayo

1 tbsp sriracha 

1 tbsp liquid aminos or sub preferred soy sauce

1 tbsp rice vinegar

2 tsp maple syrup 

2 cups cooked white rice 

12 asparagus spears



Prepare rice according to package directions. 

Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Chop the tofu into cubes and add to a bowl.

Add 1 tsp oil, I used a few seconds of spray avocado oil.

Add 1 tbsp tapioca flour.

Toss tofu in oil and flour coating each piece.

Spread evenly across the prepared baking tray.

Bake for 18-22 minutes or until browned and crispy.

While tofu bakes:

Add to a small bowl: mayo, sriracha, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and maple syrup.

Whisk to combine. Set aside.


Bring two cups water to a boil.

Add asparagus to the boiling water and blanche for 3 minutes. 

Drain and immediately rinse with cold water to stop from cooking further.

Once tofu is done cooking add to a bowl and pour the sauce over it.

Toss the tofu through the sauce evenly so each piece gets a nice coating.



Add 1 cup cooked rice to the center of each meal prep container or bowl.

Add 6 pieces asparagus to each.

Divide the tofu between both bowls.

Top with chili flakes or sesame seeds if desired.
