Crispy Fried Tofu with Shredded Vegetables & a Zesty Miso Dressing

February 25, 2019

 

Star of the Show: Tofu

Tofu is a great source of protein for vegetarians and vegans as it contains all the essential amino acids that we need for growth and development. It is also a really valuable plant source of calcium and iron.

 

INGREDIENTS (Serves 2)

200gm firm tofu

1 pepper (any colour)

2 spring onions, finely chopped

5 radishes, finely sliced

1 chilli, finely chopped

1 carrot, shredded 

1 zucchini, peeled or spiralised

1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

 

For the Dressing:

1 tbsp sweet miso paste

Juice and zest of 1 lime

1tsp honey

 

METHOD:

1. Drain excess moisture from the tofu. I use kitchen paper towels to do this as you need the tofu to be as dry as possible. Slice and then cut in half into chunks.

2. In a frying pan, add a good glut of olive oil and lightly fry the tofu on each side for approximately 3-5 minutes until golden.

2. Assemble all the salad ingredients and make the dressing. 

3. Add the tofu to the salad and toss well to coat evenly.

 

TNT Top tip: For a more substantial salad you could add some buckwheat or rice noodles.
