5 stars (5 ratings)


  • 1 cup brown rice, dry
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 8 ounces extra firm tofu
  • 1 cup edamame
  • 1 large carrot
  • ½ cup green onions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1 teaspoon ground dried ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground dried garlic


  • Cook rice: Add 1 cup brown rice and 2 cups water to a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until soft, about 20 minutes.
  • Cook tofu until crispy: Heat sesame oil in medium-low heat. Add tofu and let sit without moving for 3-5 minutes, or until brown. Stir and let tofu brown again. Repeat until tofu cubes have dried and begin to become crispy.
  • Prep vegetables: To make edamame, bring 2 cups water to a boil, add edamame, and cook 5 minutes. Then remove edamame to a bowl until ready to build bowls. To prepare carrots, simply wash carrots and then shred with a vegetable shredding tool. Set aside until ready to build bowls. To prepare the green onions, simply wash and thinly slice white and green parts, then set aside.
  • Make the ginger soy sauce: Add soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, mirin, ground ginger, and ground garlic to a small bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Build the bowls: Add brown rice, edamame, carrots and tofu to bowl. Top with the ginger soy sauce and sprinkle with sesame seed. Then enjoy!


Leftovers and Storage: This bowl is great for leftovers and will keep for up to 5-7 days in the refrigerator.
