Teriyaki Tofu n’ Butternut Bowls (Plus a Giveaway!)

Teriyaki Tofu n' Butternut Bowls | www.thatwasvegan.com
This was the weekend of tofu and butternut squash! I made two delicious dishes using both ingredients: These Teriyaki Tofu n’ Butternut Bowls, and a Butternut & Kale Lasagna, with a tofu ricotta. You’ll have to wait for that recipe, but I promise it’ll be soon. In the meantime? These bowls are perfection. The squash and tofu and brown rice make them filling and just hearty enough for this newly chilly weather, but not heavy. You could absolutely eat one of these then go on a long hike to enjoy the changing leaves!

And at this time of year, who doesn’t love cooking with squash? And using the word “Autumnal”? 

What prompted this flurry of activity? Well, in part, the cooling weather. It makes me want to crank up that oven and bake squash, lasagna, dog treats, anything that’ll make the kitchen smell good. But also, Nasoya sent me a shipment of their delicious new TofuBaked products and I couldn’t wait to use them. They’re also providing FIVE free product coupons for one lucky reader!

You may have seen these new products in the refrigerated section of your local grocer, with the other tofu. Basically, Nasoya has done all the hard work for you – They’ve pressed, marinated, and baked the tofu. It’s ready to eat, all you have to do is heat it up (or not!) and you’re good to go. They’re organic, non-gmo, and packed with protein. They come in three flavors: ChipotleSesame Ginger, and Teriyaki.

I used the Teriyaki in this recipe, and it’s so delicious I kept stealing bites of the cold tofu while I was waiting for the butternut squash to finish baking. Thankfully there was still some left…

Another favorite was definitely the Chipotle, which is their newest flavor.


I don’t have a picture to share, but my favorite way to eat this flavor was sliced thin, on sandwiches. So good! Just a little bit spicy and plenty of flavor.

  1. 1 good sized butternut squash
  2. Olive oil
  3. Salt & pepper
  4. 1 package Nasoya Teriyaki TofuBaked, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  5. 2 cups sugar snap peas, heated
  6. 2-4 cups brown rice, prepared
  7. Teriyaki sauce for drizzling
  1. Preheat oven to 425. Cut the skin away from the squash, then cube into bite-sized pieces. Arrage in a single layer on a baking sheet and drizzle with the oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir around to make sure you've got even coverage with the oil so none of the pieces stick.
  2. Bake for about 30 minutes, flipping once, until tender. Place under the broiler for 30 seconds if you want to add more color at the end.
  3. Combine all ingredients to make your bowls and drizzle with a little extra teriyaki sauce just before serving, and enjoy!
  1. I'm a light(ish) eater so 1/2 a cup of rice is plenty for me, but up it to a full cup if you're feeding the hungry!

    Pressed and sauteed in Isa’s everyday pad thai!

    I love making sweet and sour tofu with vegetables and brown rice!

  • Terri Cole October 5, 2015, 11:28 am

    I like to cube and season tofu, then bake it until crispy on the edges. It’s easier and more healthy than frying.

    I love tofu so many ways, it would be impossible to pick just one. Lately, though, my favorite has been browned in a pan and then sprinkled with nooch, black salt, and onion granules.

    Oh goodness, I’ve just been LOVING simple baked tofu lately! Roasted in a pan with olive oil and S+P at 400 degrees. Then I eat it alone or top it with whatever sauce I’m craving!

    I love tofu so many ways. My favorite might be simple baked tofu with a smoky pepper seasoning that I have at home. I but I love it scrambled, in a frittata, made into tofu ricotta in lasagna…honestly any way.

  • Sara October 5, 2015, 3:53 pm

    Marinated and baked!

  • Rosie October 5, 2015, 3:56 pm

    My fav way is to batter dip squares of tofu and roll in coconut and saute!

  • Ally October 5, 2015, 5:56 pm

    I like to toss it in cornstarch and bake it so it gets kind of a “fried” texture!

  • Emily October 5, 2015, 6:18 pm

    I love sriracha!

  • Judith October 6, 2015, 1:21 pm

    I bake it and put it on salads

  • Gloria Kersh October 6, 2015, 1:38 pm

    I love tofu flash fried to put a skin on it and tossed into a stir-fry!

  • Becca F October 7, 2015, 6:40 pm

    Defiantly bbq sauce tofu!

  • Jennifer October 9, 2015, 2:53 pm

    I would probably use them in the Pad See Ew I like to make. The tofu is the longer part of making that dish. Once that is done, it only take 10 minutes, so pre-cooked tofu would help me out so much!
