If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been ramping up the meal prep friendly recipes lately. There are a couple of reasons for that: 1) Meal prep is generally just an awesome thing that makes life and eating healthy easier. 2) You guys all seem to love the meal prep recipes I’ve been sharing, according to comments and your pictures on Instagram. And 3) I’m gearing up the blog for something NEW and very exciting that’s coming later this summer. 😜 😎 😁  Stay tuned for more details and just know – it’s gonna be AWESOME.

For now, let’s talk specifically about these tofu taco meal prep bowls and how they couldn’t be easier.

How to Make Tofu Burrito Bowl Meal Prep

You crumble the tofu, you season it up, you sauté it for few minutes, and then you portion it into the container of your choice. Top with all of the best things – like avocado and onion and salsa. And that’s it. You’re done! We’re talking 15 minutes start to finish and your fridge is stocked with healthy lunches for the week. BOOM.

The best part about these “bowls?” You can turn them into tacos or wraps – even collard wraps to keep it light! You can eat them with tortilla chips. You can eat them a la Chipotle burrito bowl. This recipe is a spin-off of my breakfast tofu bowls, but completely different in terms of flavor. If you’re looking for a breakfast meal prep option though, I highly recommend it.

However you eat them, they’re 100% delicious and a great alternative to meat-based meal prep. No fussing with chicken, no cleaning up the mess, quicker to cook, and less expensive overall. And saving money is one of the main perks of meal prep, so it just makes sense. 💁

Ingredients

  • 1 – 14 oz. package extra firm tofu
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

  • Greens – romaine, spinach, kale, etc.

Instructions

  1. Drain tofu. Remove as much excess liquid as possible by pressing between paper towels.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil to medium and add the block of tofu. Use a spoon or spatula to “chop” the tofu. Add seasonings and continue “chopping” and stirring until all of the tofu is seasoned.
  3. Cook 8-10 minutes, until tofu is heated throughout.
  4. Portion tofu into meal prep containers (or into bowls if you’re eating it now!) and add desired toppings.
  5. Store in the fridge up to 10 days.

Notes

Sometimes I make a batch of quinoa or rice to go along with these bowls for extra carbs!

    Liked. Healthy and tasty. The spices worked with the tofu. I added a squeeze of lime. P

    What portion sizes did you use for each of these, I don’t understand how calories can be accurate, how much beans, etc.

      Hi Ashley –

      My nutritional calculator only took the block of tofu into account for the quantities. I’ve since corrected it. For each bowl, I usually add 1/4 – 1/2 cup of black beans and 1/4 of an avocado. The nutritional info now reflects those amounts. I did not include the greens, tomatoes, onions, etc. Of course, all of the quantities are flexible depending on your preferences! Sorry for the confusion.

    My one question that I always have when I see similar recipes is… what would you do in terms of heating this up?? The tofu and beans should be warmed up but the greens shouldn’t be- what do you recommend? Thanks!!

      I love to eat it as a cold salad. It’s really good that way. But if you like it warm, what if you put the salad over a little piece of plastic wrap so you can just take ot out and warm the rest and then put it back in.

    This is great inspiration for me. I work from home and if I don’t have healthy meals ready in the fridge and I turn to the pantry—and that is dangerous. :)

      Ain’t that the truth?! I am a chronic grazer if I don’t have healthy alternatives around.
