You, Too, Can Like… Tofu! In Tofu Shrimp Bowls, that is.


You don’t have to be a vegetarian. Or a vegan. Or really weird. Or any of the excuses you’ve made over the years for avoiding tofu.

If this guy… this bacon loving man likes tofu…

Ben and tofu
Yes he does!

…then you can too!

Tofu Shrimp Bowls
Especially when it looks like this… so pretty! And get ready–it tastes even better!

It’s not slimy. It’s not smelly. It’s not mushy. I promise!

Just give it a try… these tofu shrimp bowls I made the other night don’t really have a recipe, per se, but here’s what I did.

Tofu Shrimp Bowls


  • 1 block tofu
  • 8 ounces cooked cocktail shrimp
  • 1/2 cup frozen lima beans
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • salt
  • pepper
  • cooked rice
  • 1/3 cup water


Prepare tofu according to The Front Burner Blog’s tutorial. Meanwhile, in a separate saucepan, place water, shrimp, lima beans, and peas. Season with salt and pepper and let simmer until heated through. Prepare your rice according to package directions, and combine rice, shrimp/veggie mixture, and tofu in a bowl to serve. Enjoy! We found everything very flavorful on its own, but you could experiment with soy sauce, teriyaki, etc. if you’d like an extra boost of flavor!

Question of the Day:

On a scale of 1-10, how do you feel about tofu? 1=EWWWW gross, I’d never eat it if I was starving in the desert and 10=tofu is the BEST thing EVER!!!!! I’m about an 8… I won’t go so far as to say it’s my absolute favorite food ever, and I wouldn’t eat it once a day [or once a week even], but I’ll eat it a few times a month.

  1. Yay for tofu recipes! I love tofu when it is browned or lightly crisped, and I especially love it in desserts. Chocolate tofu pudding is the best–whip melted dark chocolate and tofu in a food processor. Add a spoon-ful of peanut butter to make it even better 🙂


  2. I’d give it a five. If it’s prepared right (i.e. fried), I could eat it occasionally. But I don’t expect to ever encourage you to pick it up at the store or order it a restaurant or something like that.


  3. I really like tofu and would give it about an 8 as well. Everytime I eat it, I’m like oh wow this is really good, I should eat it more. but I don’t MISS it when it’s gone. This sounds like one delicious tofu shrimp bowl!


  4. It’s not my favorite, but I don’t mind it. I had tofu stuffed pasta shells once and that was delicious. My husband -however – refuses to even come close enough to smell it, never mind try it. Ha ha.


Thanks for visiting... I would love to hear from you!
