Spicy Tofu Salad Bowl

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"When it's too hot or when I don't feel like cooking, I'll make this quick healthy bowl. Sometimes I just eat it as a salad without rice and sometimes I mix a spoonful of the spicy paste with the steam rice and eat it."

  1. Mix green onions, soy sauce, sesame seeds, Korean red pepper powder, sugar, and sesame oil together in a bowl until evenly combined.
  2. Place rice in a serving bowl. Toss lettuce and cucumber together and place onto rice. Arrange tofu over lettuce and cucumber. Drizzle sesame mixture over tofu to taste.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You cannot substitute Korean chili powder with any other chili pepper powders. It will be too spicy and it won't taste the same.
  • Silken or firm tofu can be used.

This recipe is fabulous! It is very easy to make. I don't make any changes to the sauce except I add the chili pepper powder a little at a time so it's not so spicy. When you eat a little bi...
