These lunch bowls are so delicious and packed with plant-based protein. Cabbage, little potatoes, shredded carrots, green beans, cucumbers, baked tofu and peanut sauce. A must-make! Vegan and gluten-free.


To make these come together quickly, you can buy steam-ready green beans to easily throw them in the microwave after the potatoes. If you don’t have those, then steam the green beans separately while the potatoes and tofu are cooking.

The tofu can be made ahead of time to save on total cooking time.
