Save your money on takeout and make these delicious tofu burrito bowls filled with cilantro lime rice, crispy tofu crumbles, fajita veggies, and a homemade guacamole!
Tofu burrito bowls
These burrito bowls are the perfect vegetarian meal prep for the week. You can prepare all of the ingredients a few days in advance, and assemble them throughout the week for a delicious lunch or dinner.
These bowls have ALL of the goods, like cilantro lime rice, crispy tofu crumbles, fajita veggies, and homemade guacamole. You can even make them vegan by swapping your favorite vegan shredded cheese!
Burrito bowls are one of my favorite weekday meals because there are so many ways to customize them. You can serve them on a bed of rice or lettuce, eat them with tortilla chips, or add the fillings to a tortilla and eat them as tacos.
They’re packed with plant-based protein and fiber, and are so flavorful.
What you’ll need to make vegetarian burrito bowls
These bowls take a little bit of prep work, but they’re worth every minutes. Here’s how to make vegetarian burrito bowls:
- Prepare the cilantro lime rice. Cook your rice as you normally would, then mix it with lime juice, lime zest, salt, garlic, and cilantro once ready.
- Crumble the tofu. The tofu gets crumbled and crisped in a pan with some oil and a few simple spices. The longer is sits in the pan, the crispier the pieces get.
- Cook the veggies. Once the tofu is ready, remove it from the pan and cook the fajita veggies in the same pan to save some dishes.
- Prepare your guacamole
- Assemble the bowls. Now that all of your ingredients are prepared, assemble your bowl with all of your favorite toppings!
I love to top my burrito bowls with canned black beans, shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and hot sauce. These bowls are super versatile, and could be made with any toppings you have around.
