Sweet Chili Tofu Bowls

A great meal prep recipe (if that’s what you’re into)


  • 16 oz. of firm or extra firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon of corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of sweet chili sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Press tofu using tofu pressing method of choice (or tofu press if you have one). Pat dry tofu with paper towel. Cut into 1 inch cubes.
  3. Sprinkle cornstarch and spices over tofu cubes and coat evenly. Once evenly coated, put onto lined baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes until crispy.
  4. Once tofu is baked, toss in sweet chili sauce. Serve over rice with vegetable of choice (I like steamed broccoli). Enjoy!

*You can also swap out the sweet chili sauce with another sauce of choice (think teriyaki, peanut, hoisin, heck — even barbecue! etc.). If you do want to use a good sweet chili sauce though, I’d highly recommend Mae Ploy since it’s delicious and vegan. You can find it here.

*The method I use for making crispy tofu is heavily inspired by Pinch of Yum’s method. You can find that here.
