It doesn’t get any healthier than a dish with the name, salad with tofu and fresh vegetables. And I’m guessing that those looking for a healthier recipe option now have your mouth waters with anticipation.
Take note though that this recipe is more of how to prepare your tofu as a topping for your salad rather than an entire dish in itself. The idea is for you to just use any vegetables you want. In fact, you can just throw in any fresh greens into a bowl and top it with some deliciously marinated tofu.
So I won’t torture you any longer with my blabbering and get you started on making your salad with tofu and fresh vegetables.
½ block of firm or extra-firm tofu, cut into bite size pieces
1 tbsp of light soy sauce
2 cloves of minced garlic
2 tsp of sriracha
1 tsp of sesame oil
How to Make your Salad with Tofu and Fresh Vegetables
Get a shallow dish and mix all the marinade ingredients together.
Add your tofu to the marinade mix, throw it inside the fridge and allow to marinate for at least an hour. The longer you marinate the tofu, the better the taste.
After you have marinated the tofu, go get a skillet and heat no more than 2 tsp of oil over medium heat.
Now go and prepare your salad. It can be whatever greens you want, and then top it with your marinated tofu.
