Vegan Gado Gado Bowls! 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.




  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce (can also sub 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes)
  • 3 tablespoons hot water (to thin)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cube tofu and place in a single layer on a non-stick baking sheet and cook for 25 minutes. If you aren’t using a non-stick baking sheet, lightly spray with cooking spray. Remove from oven and place in a shallow bowl.
  2. While the tofu is cooking, whisk together all of the ingredients for the peanut sauce until creamy and easily pourable. Place 3 tablespoons of the peanut sauce into the bowl with the cooked tofu. Reserve the remaining sauce.
  3. Cook the Little Potato Company potatoes as directed. Peel back plastic film and remove seasoning pack. Position film to close and place tray in microwave. Cook on high for 5 minutes. (Cooking times may vary by microwave). Let rest for 2-4 minutes in the tray, then remove plastic film and stir in seasoning pack.
  4. Assemble! Place the cooked and raw vegetables into separate bowls and top with the tofu. Drizzle on remaining peanut sauce and enjoy!


  • To make these come together quickly, I buy the steam-ready green beans so I can 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 is cooking.
  • The tofu can be made ahead of time!
