BBQ Tofu Bowl


This tofu bowl is so comforting and healthy but simple to make! I love to serve the tofu over rice, but feel free to add it to a salad, or even serve it with fries for a nostalgic, kid-friendly meal.

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings


  • 1/2 block tofu (about 6 oz.), cubed
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 5 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 tbsp BBQ sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 12 tbsp maple syrup (depending how sweet your BBQ sauce is)
  • 1 tsp sriracha or hot sauce
  • white rice (I do 1/2 cup dry rice plus 1 cup water)
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds


  1. Cook your rice and broccoli. I use a rice cooker and then steam my broccoli in a pot or in the microwave.
  2. Preheat a frying pan to medium heat. Add the oil, tofu and mushrooms. Cook until slightly browned.
  3. Add the BBQ sauce, soy sauce, maple syrup, sriracha and any other spices you like. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes until the sauce has thickened and starts to caramelize.
  4. Serve over rice with a side of broccoli. Top with sesame seeds. Enjoy!

  1. Hey! I really wanted to try and make this bowl, but what kind of tofu should I use? The soft, medium firm, or firm one?

  2. I came across your YouTube channel 6 months ago, and Oh my goodness! You have opened my eyes to so many different recipes. I am a mother of 3 and have been totally lost on what to make every night for dinner. The only recipe I’ve used tofu for was Southwest Tofu Scramble, but holy moly this was delicious! I think I’ll brown the tofu a little bit more next time, but I was so hungry I couldn’t wait. I made double the recipe to feed a family of 4. Thank you, Thank you!
