It’s January and it’s time to reset! It’s not new news that people like to try and kick off a new year with healthier choices. If I could offer you any piece of advice, it’s that if you start small with changing your diet, then it’ll seem less overwhelming and you’ll be more likely to follow it. One way you can do this is by picking one meal to really focus on making changes in. For example, lunch, by prepping this delicious tofu power bowl. This recipe is a great intro to a vegan diet, it’s easy-to-make, and although it’s healthy, it doesn’t lack in flavor at all. 

Why you’ll love this tofu power bowl:

  • It’s lean, vegan, and delicious
  • It’s full of protein so it’ll keep you full
  • It’s great for meal prep
  • Perfect for lunch or dinner

Chosen Foods salad dressings on countertop for Tofu Power Bowl

What is my favorite vegan salad dressing?

Making homemade salad dressing can just take too much time for people. When you’re on-the-go, you often need something that you can just reach for in the fridge and trust. That’s why I love having Chosen Foods salad dressings always on hand. These dressings are soooooo good. They are nutrition-packed and free from added sugar that you’d find in a lot of store-bought dressings. They also have so many options that fit your dietary needs such as:

  • Gluten-free
  • Keto-friendly
  • Vegan
  • Dairy-free

For this recipe, I used Chosen’s Earth Goddess Dressing that has an earthy taste of ancient sesame blended with pure avocado oil. This dressing combines the flavors of:

  • Lemon juice
  • Tahini
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Tamari
  • Toasted sesame oil
  • Garlic
  • Parsley
  • Chives

It is great for salads, bowls, dips, marinades, and the list goes on. Plus they use only 100% pure avocado oil which is truly the star. I love foods that I can count on and not have to worry about the ingredients.

How do you make a tofu power bowl?

Okay, let’s get to this recipe. Here’s what you have to do to pull off this amazing tofu power bowl. I promise it’s easy.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper
  2. Prepare quinoa as instructed on the package and set to cool
  3. To one of the baking sheets, add the cubed sweet potato and pour over the 3 tbsp. of plant goddess. You can add as much of this dressing as you like, the more, the better
  4. Bake for 35 minutes, checking a few times to flip them and ensure no burning is happening
  5. To the other baking sheet, add the cauliflower and drizzle with avocado oil to crisp it up nicely (use up 1/4 of the pan to do this)
  6. To the other 3/4 of the pan, add the tofu but first, submerge them all in the 4 tbsp. of plant goodness dressing. Transfer them to the baking sheet and cook for 35 minutes, flipping them halfway through
  7. Once everything has cooked, simply combine it by adding everything to a large serving tray or bowl or meal prep containers and top with cilantro, cashews, and whatever toppings your heart desires. OH and the dressing 😉
