Serves: 4


  • 1 package (14 oz.) Simple Truth Organic™ Extra Firm Tofu
  • Non Stick Coconut Cooking Spray
  • 1⁄2 cup Simple Truth Organic™ Asian Style Sesame Vinaigrette, divided
  • 8 toothpicks
  • 1⁄2 package (16 oz.) Simple Truth Organic™ Whole Wheat Spaghetti
  • 1 package (10 oz.) Simple Truth Organic™ Edamame, thawed
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 English cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced


  • Heat oven to 400°F. Drain tofu. Cut into 16 cubes and thread 2 cubes onto each toothpick. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and arrange tofu cubes on the tray. Brush tofu with ¼ cup of the sesame vinaigrette and bake for 15 minutes until lightly browned. Cool.
  • Fill a medium saucepan halfway with water and bring to a boil. Break the spaghetti noodles in half, add to the boiling water and cook until just tender. Drain, rinse and cool.
  • In a Bento box compartment, divide the pasta into 4 containers and top each with two tofu skewers. Top with sliced green onions and divide the remaining vinaigrette into 4 small containers. This can be refrigerated overnight. Add fresh fruits and vegetables to the bento box.
