    lunch prep - 1 days
    1. Roasted tofu & veggies
    265 cals, 18p, 12c, 13f (per meal)
  • Extra firm tofu
    1/2 block (162g)
  • Salt
    2 dash (2g)
  • Black pepper
    2 dash, ground (1g)
  • Brussels sprouts, cut in half
    1/8 lb (57g)
  • Carrots, cut as desired
    3/4 medium (46g)
  • Broccoli, cut as desired
    4 tbsp chopped (23g)
  • Bell pepper, sliced
    1/4 medium (30g)
  • Onion, thickly sliced
    1/8 medium (2-1/2" dia) (14g)
  • Olive oil
    1/2 tbsp (8mL)
  • Recipe has been scaled from original by 0.25x. Adjust cook times and pan sizes accordingly.
    1
    Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C).
    2
    Drain tofu and use absorbent towel to pat away as much moisture as possible.
    3
    Cut tofu in one inch cubes.
    4
    On one baking sheet, drizzle a third of the oil and put the tofu on the sheet. Shake to coat. Set aside.
    5
    On a second baking sheet, drizzle the remaining olive oil and toss vegetables until evenly coated. It is best to give each type of vegetable its own spot on the sheet so that you can remove the quickly cooking vegetables earlier in the process than the vegetables that take longer.
    6
    Place sheets in the oven- tofu on the top rack and vegetables on the lower one. Set timer for 20 minutes.
    7
    After the 20 minutes are up, flip the tofu and check on the vegetables. Remove any vegetables that are fully cooked.
    8
    Place both sheets back into the oven and increase the temperature to 450 F (230 C) for an additional 20-25 minutes until tofu is brown on all sides. Be sure to check veggies and tofu throughout the process to avoid overcooking.
    9
    Remove all from oven and combine. Season with salt and pepper. Serve.
    2. White rice
    85 cals, 2p, 18c, 0f (per meal)
  • Salt
    1 dash (1g)
  • Water
    1/4 cup(s) (59mL)
  • Long-grain white rice
    2 tbsp (23g)
  • Black pepper
    3/4 dash, ground (0g)
  • Recipe has been scaled from original by 0.13x. Adjust cook times and pan sizes accordingly.
    1
    In a saucepan with a good fitting lid bring water and salt to a boil.
    2
    Add rice and stir.
    3
    Cover and reduce heat to medium low. You will know that your temperature is correct if a little steam is visible leaking from the lid. A lot of steam means your heat is too high.
    4
    Cook for 20 minutes.
    5
    DO NOT LIFT LID!
    6
    The steam that is trapped inside the pan is what allows the rice to cook properly.
    7
    Remove from heat and fluff with fork, season with pepper, and serve.
