Servings 4 people


  • 1 recipe pickled cucumber salad (see Instructions below; be sure to prepare well in advance)
  • 1 brick tofu , drained and cubed (see Instructions below)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 6 cups fresh greens , such as spinach leaves
  • 4 cups mixed steamed vegetables (see instructions below)
  • 4 green onions , optional
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 recipe korean BBQ sauce (see instructions below)


Prepare Tofu

  • Drain liquid from tofu. TIP: For firmer tofu, I like to wrap it in layers of paper towels or a lint-free dish towel and press under a cast iron skillet for 2 hours, changing towels once midway. Watch my video How to Drain Tofu in 3 Easy Steps.
  • Once tofu is drained, cut in bite-sized cubes.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment or silicone mat, or lightly grease.
  • Toss in sesame oil and spread on baking sheet. Roast in oven for 10-12 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

Assemble Bowls

  • Place ~1 1/2 cups of your favorite greens in each bowl.
  • Top each bowl with ~1 cup of your favorite fresh, steamed or roasted veggies.
  • TIP: to "steam" without the hassle: Add 3-4 cups of bite-sized veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, peppers, cabbage and snap peas to a dinner-sized plate or casserole dish. Lightly sprinkle with water. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and microwave 2-4 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork.
  • Top each bowl with tofu and cucumber salad.
  • Garnish with sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds if desired.
  • Drizzle with Korean BBQ sauce prior to serving.


Easily substitute grilled fish or chicken if desired.
