Crispy Tofu Salad

Tofu salad

This crispy vegan friendly tofu salad is low in calories and high in protein. It’s a very healthy meal anyone can enjoy. This is a quick and easy recipe that tastes amazing. The roasted tofu feels like chewing on some gummies, very satisfying.

Tofu salad

I came up with this idea after I made another vegan friendly recipe of spicy sesame tofu.

Make sure to use extra firm tofu to get the crispy flavor. The ordinary classic tofu tends to be softer and doesn’t become as tender.

Vegies for the salad

I have used the regular vegetables such as lettuce, cucumber, and avocado for the salad. You can use whatever vegies are available to you.

Best sauce for the tofu salad

I really liked the Tahini sauce that I used in this recipe. This is also a vegan friendly sauce and goes really well on this meal. It also looks good colorwise. I made this sauce at home.

You could also try it with cashew sauce, almond or peanut sauce, or potato sauce. I hope I will make the recipe someday.
