Spicy Sofritas Black Bean Bowl

  • I have never been a fan of tofu, it was bland and the texture was spongy. I never knew how to prepare it or what to do with it. And it just doesn’t look pretty. Am I the only one that feels this way?

But this meal has changed all of that!! The texture was similar to ground turkey/beef, well maybe still a little spongy. Nonetheless, this meal was easy to prepare especially if you have brown rice already made.

This is a great post workout meal because there is a solid amount of healthy carbs and protein or if you want a yummy meatless bowl, which is what hubs has been all about.
