i am taking on a healthier lifestyle, and i’m feeling pretty happy about things. (as soon as that monster cookie ice cream is GONE, and once i get a juicer, life will be even better) i wanted to share one of my favorite recipes with you. its the way i was introduced to tofu, about 6 years ago. its been my super-comfort food for the last few years in manhattan, and i can make my dream sandwich with this stuff . . .
so here it is, my favorite, tofu salad.
- 14 ounces water-packed extra firm tofu, drained & diced
-carrots, shredded about a 1/2 cup
-3-4 scallions, chopped
-1/2 of a bell pepper
-1/4 toasted sunflower seeds
-1/2 cup of vegenaise
the ‘rules’ are very loose and i rarely measure amounts, just eyeball it – i even skip the celery because i hate celery! (but do yourself a favor, and add some celery, the way it was meant to be.) so add more veggies, less veggies, different veggies, whatever. i believe part of the fun in cooking is making a recipe exactly how you want it to be. pack this up and store it in the fridge for sandwiches all week long!
vegenaise! have you had this?? it is ESSENTIAL! don’t substitute mayo or anything else. find the veg!
want to construct the perfect sandwich with your tofu salad? here it is:
rudi’s organic honey sweet, whole wheat bread
some traditional hummus
so eat it!!
