This tasty and colorful bowl will have your mouth watering. It’s filled with nutritious veggies and a double dose of protein from beans and tofu! Yum!
This bowl is a great healthy meal that’s not only delicious but also filled with veggies so it’s immune boosting and anti-inflammatory. If you want more flavor in your day while keeping it real, this Asian Fusion Bowl is a great place to start.
The ingredients in this bowl are natural, loaded with good for you nutrients, sugar free, gluten-free, dairy free, and vegan.
What about that tofu?
If you don’t like tofu or don’t eat tofu for whatever reason, you can simply leave it off of the bowl. It’s still delicious without the tofu.
But I really like the added texture, flavor, and protein that the tofu adds to the bowl.
You can also make your own baked tofu. Try one of these recipes.
