Peanut Butter Tofu Broccoli Bowl

8 Aug


I just got back from a weekend long yoga workshop in Chicago. It was awesome. I am on that total “yoga high” right now. Any fellow yogis out there who know what I’m talking about?


I’m in that zone where I want to eat nothing but green veggies and tofu, light incense around our apartment, sip on coconut water all day long, and get my “Om” on 24/7.


While the intensity of the “yoga high” is bound to dwindle, I do feel rejuvenated in a lot of ways. Yoga is how I finally discovered the idea of moderation and balance in many areas of my life…especially diet. It made me aware of how the things I put in my body make me feel leading to a mostly healthy diet with the occasional treat. I finally realized that all foods are ok…some more often than others.  


This Peanut Tofu Broccoli Bowl gives you all the yumminess of an indulgent dish while using simple ingredients, and filling you up with protein, fiber, and antioxidants.

Get this…my hubby found himself going back for seconds…and then again back for thirds.


Peanut Tofu Broccoli Bowl

Serves 4

Note: I usually drain my tofu for at least 30 minutes between two plates lined with paper towel.

½ package (5 oz) lo mein or udon noodles

2 cups broccoli heads

1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 package firm or extra firm tofu, drained, and cubed (see note)


¼ cup peanut butter

¼ cup low sodium soy sauce

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

½ cup water


  1. Heat oil over medium heat. Add cubed tofu. Cook tofu until well brown on all sides; about 10-15 minutes
  2. Meanwhile, bring water to boil and cook noodles according to package instructions.
  3. Steam broccoli in microwave by placing broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl filled with 1-inch of water. Loosely cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 3 minutes.  
  4. Make sauce by combining all ingredients in a small nonstick pan. Whisk constantly until peanut butter is melted and ingredients are well combined.
  5. Add broccoli, drained noodles, and sauce to pan with tofu and bring to a low simmer for about 5 minutes. Enjoy J
