Recipe: Sesame Tofu Salad

This tofu dish packs in flavor.  By marinating the tofu and using bold flavors with healthy fats, you won’t feel left wanting more after this appetizer or light meal.  It provides a great crunch and powerful punch of nutrients (the rhyming was totally unintended).

Sesame Tofu Salad

Serves 6

  • 1 package firm Tofu, drained, pressed, and diced
  • ¼ cup + 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon + 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons white sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 6-8 heads of baby bok choy, shredded
  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced
  • 1 generous handful of cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and diced
  • 3-4 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi paste
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger, finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Marinate the tofu in ¼ cup soy sauce.  In a large saucepan, heat 1 tbsp. sesame oil over medium heat.  Add the onion and sauté for 1-2 minutes, add the garlic and sauté another 1-2 minutes.  Add the tofu, white sesame seeds, cumin, paprika, and crushed red pepper.  Add salt and pepper to taste; sauté until the tofu is browned on all sides, stirring occasionally.

While the tofu cooks, combine the bok choy, scallions, cilantro, and red pepper in a large bowl.  In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining soy sauce, remaining sesame oil, rice vinegar, wasabi paste, and ginger for the dressing.

When the tofu is finished, allow it to cool before adding it to the salad.  Lastly, add the dressing and toss to combine.  Sprinkle the black sesame seeds over the top and serve.
