Yes, my name really is spelled that way.


salad with marinated tofu.

The summery weather this past weekend had me sitting outside, drinking beer and enjoying a post yoga salad.  Since I had some leftovers - namely tofu and quinoa - I made a fresh salad to use up both.  
salad with marinated tofu.
for the tofu:
brick of extra firm tofu
dash soy sauce (low sodium)
dash sesame oil or grapeseed oil
dash maple syrup
drop of fish sauce
sprinkle of chili flakes
sprinkle of sesame seeds

for the salad:
mixed greens
1-2 tbsp leftover quinoa
2 tbsp cooked, shelled edamame
balsamic vinaigrette 
sprinkling of microgreens for the top
Cut tofu into 2 inch pieces.  Drain for 10 minutes on paper towels.  Meanwhile, mix marinade and pour into a bowl.  Once tofu is drained, add to marinade.  Turn a few times to coat - allowing to marinade for at least 10 minutes, maximum 1 hour.  Preheat non-stick pan or grill over medium heat.  Add marinaded tofu and cook a couple minutes per side.  
Add mixed greens, quinoa, edamame to a bowl.  Top with vinaigrette and toss to coat.  Add cooked tofu and top with microgreens. 


  1. Can we go grocery shopping together one of these days? I want to start planning my meals for the work week :)

  2. Yum, I've never cooked with tofu before, but I want to try this recipe. It looks great.

  3. Jensie- yes we should totally go grocery shopping together. I would be happy to help!

    Jac - you've never cooked with tofu before?! How is that possible?
