Crispy Smoked Tofu & Roasted Vegetable Salad

Feel Good Recipes

Roasted vegetable salads are an absolute dream, they are so versatile. From vegetables and leaves to proteins and dressings to suit your needs. You can pack them with nuts and seeds to give you a highly nutritious meal. I roasted my vegetables in coconut oil to give them a delicious flavour.

Serves 2

Ingredients

Roasted Vegetables
2 carrots
1 large potato
1 large onion
Fresh thyme
Fresh rosemary
4 garlic cloves

Tofu
225g (1 block) Firm Smoked Tofu (optional) you can use plain too
1/2 cup cornflour
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp chilli flakes
2 tbsp panko breadcrumbs
2 tbsp garlic granuels
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp sea salt
Rapeseed oil

Salad
1/4 iceberg lettuce
Handful rocket
Pumpkin seeds
Flaked almonds
Hempseeds

Dressing (this will last a few salads)
6 tbsp rapeseed oil
2 tbsp flaxseed oil
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 crushed smoked garlic clove
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cumin

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180
  2. Wash and chop the vegetables and garlic – leave the garlic cloves whole, peeled and slightly crushed to release the sulfur to make the garlic flavour stronger
  3. Add to a baking tray with the fresh herbs, salt and pepper
  4. Roasted for approx 25 minutes
  5. Cut the Tofu into small cubes
  6. Put the cornflour into a bowl and rub the tofu in the cornflour until all sides are covered
  7. Mix all of the spices and breadcrumbs into a deep bowl
  8. Shallow fry the tofu in a frying pan with rapeseed oil until golden brown and crispy
  9. Remove the tofu from the pan a few at a time – do not let the oil dry as this will help the spices and breadcrumbs to stick to the crispy tofu. As soon as you have removed some from the pan, add it to the bowl and shake in the spices until all tofu cubes are covered.
  10. These can be left too cool while you prepare the rest of the salad (if you want to keep them hot with the salad, put them in the oven with the vegetables and turn the oven down)
  11. Shred the lettuce and wash with the rocket, portion onto two plates
  12. Add the roasted veggies, tofu and top with the seeds
  13. Drizzle the dressing onto and enjoy!!
