Spicy Tofu Bento Bowl

Serves 6

Bento boxes are lunch containers with separate compartments used for take-along and take-out lunches in Japan. Here we’ve assembled traditional bento box components in a one-bowl salad.

Spicy Tofu
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup hot chili-garlic sauce
2 Tbs. dark sesame oil
14-oz. extra-firm tofu, cubed
5 green onions, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup nonfat yogurt
2 Tbs. lemon juice

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1 Tbs. minced fresh ginger
1 tsp. hot chili-garlic sauce
2 cups cooked short-grain brown rice
4 1/2 cups mixed baby greens
2 carrots, peeled
1 cucumber, sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 avocado, peeled and sliced
1 Tbs. toasted sesame seeds


  1. To make Spicy Tofu: Whisk together soy sauce, chili sauce and sesame oil in bowl. Heat nonstick skillet over medium heat. Dip tofu in chili mixture. Cook 10 minutes, or until browned, turning occasionally. Cool. Add green onions, yogurt and lemon juice to remaining chili mixture. Toss with tofu.
  2. To make Salad: Whisk together soy sauce, lemon juice, ginger and chili sauce in bowl. Mound rice in bowls. Top with greens. Shave strips of carrots over top with vegetable peeler. Top with tofu, cucumber and avocado. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve with sauce.
