I know, I know.. I promised a weekly meatless recipe and have been slacking, apologies!! Mid-terms in Nursing school this week & 2 lovely babies.. Enough said right? I'll do my best to make up for the last 2 weeks. ;)
I am a big fan of salads and no, not JUST because I am a vegetarian, but because of all the different options there are for making salads! The "main" ingredient in this particular delectable salad is Extra firm tofu.
Here are the rest:
-1 large bag of spinach
-1 bag of ice berg, or any other type of your favorite salad mix, head of lettuce, etc.
-Fat free raspberry vinaigerette dressing or any other of your favorite dressings
(optional fruits & veggies)
-1 container of organic brocolli sprouts
-2 avocadoes, sliced up
-1 large tomatoe
-1 or 2 cucumbers (depending on how much you enjoy them! I use 2)
-Fresh cut up strawberries
-Put your salad mix & diced vegetables into a large salad bowl
-Open the package of extra firm tofu and dice into little cubes
-Pre-heat a pan with EVOO on medium heat, not too high or you will burn the tofu :)
-Place in your cubed tofu and continue to stir so it doesn't stick
-I also use "Bragg's" It's similar to soy sauce loaded with amino acids (available at any health food store) about 3 Tbsp
-I like to cook the tofu until it is firm and a little brown on the edges
-Place as much as you would like a top your salad
-Use salad dressing as desired
Please give me your feed back If you decide to try it out & let me know how it turned out!
Such a beautiful salad! And did I mention, D-LISH?!
My 2 and a half year old loves this salad.
Hope you enjoy!
