10 Minute Vegan Miso Salad

Here’s a lunch or a light dinner that will nourish every single part of your body and make it super duper easy to consume a few cups of salad, as the flavours are amazing! Upping your vegetable intake and aiming for a variety of colours too should be at the top of your priority list each week! Vegetables are high in fibre, feeding the healthy bacteria in your gut. They’re also low in calories, so a higher vegetable intake has been associated with lower BMIs, they contain anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer compounds and are super high in antioxidants.

10 Minute vegan miso salad

Serves: 1

Time: 10 mins

Ingredients

Pan fried tofu:

  • 100 g organic, firm tofu

  • 1 tsp coconut oil (or 1 generous spray coconut oil spray)

  • 1 tbsp tamari

  • 1 tsp sesame oil

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Salad:

  • 2-3 cups mixed salad (here I had a pre-mixed bag of cabbage, beetroot, carrot, spinach and kale)

Miso Dressing:

  • 1 heaped tbsp miso paste

  • 1 tsp tamari

  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or white vinegar

  • 1/4 tsp stevia (optional)

  • 1 tsp fresh ginger or a sprinkle or ground ginger

  • 1 tsp sesame oil

To serve (optional):

  • Coriander

  • Sesame seeds

  • Chili flakes

Method

  1.  For the tofu, roughly mix together the tamari, sesame oil and garlic powder. Then, slice tofu into thin slices and coat in the marinade.

  2. Heat a pan over medium, then melt the coconut oil. When hot, add tofu and cook until browned, about 2 minutes on each side.

  3. Assemble salad in a bowl.

  4. Make the dressing by whisking all of the ingredients together. Taste and add any extra component you think is needed.

  5. Place tofu ontop of the salad, pour over the dressing and sprinkle with chili flakes, sesame seeds and coriander!

Notes:

Make a few batches of the tofu and double or quadruple the dressing to keep in the fridge for lunches or dinners through the week! The dressing keeps for up to a week in the fridge easy.

Swap tofu to chicken in your prefer!
