Tofu Avocado Salad
When a regular salad leaves you unsatisfied, try this tofu avocado salad recipe instead for a nutrient rich filling lunch. Food blogger Marc Matsumoto breaks down the flavor components of this recipe in a full post on the Fresh Tastes blog.
- 11 ounces silken tofu, cut into cubes
- 1 large avocado
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1 scallion minced
- handful of cilantro
- Put the cubed tofu in a sieve or colander over a bowl to allow excess water to drain for at least 1 hour. This keeps the salad from getting watery.
- Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, then peel and cube the avocado. Put the avocado in a non-reactive bowl and toss with the lemon juice to prevent it from changing color.
- Add the drained tofu, salt, sesame seeds, sesame oil, and scallions. Gently toss to distribute all the ingredients evenly. Top with cilantro and serve.
