These tofu bowls are packed with flavor, texture. and nutrients, and require only 4 pantry items to make the meal happen! Makes 2 - 4 servings depending on appetite.
If cooking the rice, cook per package instructions. (I like to add a little butter or olive oil and pinch of salt.)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Open and drain the tofu, then press it firmly with paper towels or a clean dish towel until most of the water is removed when you squeeze it gently. Slice it into 1 inch cubes and spread them on a baking sheet (note: I use a silpat to prevent sticking, but if you don't have one, lightly mist the baking sheet with cooking spray first). Gently pat the tofu dry one more time once its on the sheet, and then sprinkle with salt. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, turning halfway through for even cooking. (Note: you want the tofu to be slightly browning on the edges.)
When the tofu is done, add it to a bowl, stir in the dressing to coat, and allow it to marinate for 10 minutes.
Once the rice is finished cooking, assemble the bowls! Big heap of lettuce mix, scoop of rice, and finish with the tofu plus an extra drizzle of dressing.
