Amy’s Teriyaki Bowl

155 amys teriyakiI’m not sure how I feel about this Teriyaki Bowl made with organic tofu, brown rice, and broccoli. It’s a little spicier than I would like. It was certainly quick and easy enough to prepare – a total of 4.5 minutes in the microwave. And they ask you to remove the plastic for the second half of the cooking – and no, it didn’t splatter all over the inside of my microwave.

At only 290 calories and 4.5 grams of fat, that’s pretty good for a meal. 780 mg of sodium, 12 grams of protein, and 0 cholesterol is also nice. The consistency is good – nothing is hard or chewy or mushy. If it had just a little less kick to it (which is probably not even noticeable to a regular person), this would be a viable dinner option for me at only $3.99 at my neighborhood Safeway.

If you don’t mind your teriyaki just slightly on the spicy side, then this dish is for you. Me? I’ll stick with making my own version of teriyaki – with Worcestershire sauce, honey, ginger, garlic, and butter – used in this Tangy Cashew Chicken recipe.
