If you have never tried tofu this is the BEST recipe to give it a go! It’s full of flavour and takes an awesome Instagram picture ;) It will require a little chopping, but it’s totally worth it in the end. 

Do you want some more salad recipes that help keep you feeling full? Try my healthy chicken and quinoa salad.

Ingredients (makes 2 serves):
180g firm tofu, drained

Method:
1. Pat the tofu dry using a paper towel and cut into 4 pieces. Tip the sesame seeds onto a large plate and gently press one side of the tofu into the sesame seeds to coat. Transfer to a clean plate.

2. Whisk the tahini, tamari or soy sauce, vinegar and honey together in a small bowl.

3. Heat a non-stick fry pan over medium-high. Add the asparagus and cook for 3-5 minutes or until they start to change colour and reach the desired tenderness. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

4. Place the snow peas, carrot, spring onions, bean sprouts, cabbage and asparagus in a mixing bowl, drizzle over half of the dressing and toss gently to combine. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

5. Heat the oil in a non-stick fry over high heat. Cook the tofu, sesame-seed side down for 2 minutes or until golden. Carefully turn and cook for a further 2 minutes, until golden.

6. To serve, place the salad on 2 serving plates and top with the tofu. Drizzle over the remaining dressing. Enjoy!
