BBQ Tofu Salad

One of the most important foods to make sure you buy buy organic is tofu, and soy.  Since soy tends to be a GMO and heavily sprayed crop. But as long as you buy organic, soy is really good for you and a good source of protein as long as you don’t have an allergy. I like to include it in my meals almost every day, because it is so versatile and satisfying.  The salad I am sharing with you today is filling and hearty, but also light enough that you won’t feel weighed down.  It has a BBQ tofu that is really easy to make, along with vitamin rich greens, veggies and avocado in a lime vinaigrette!  This is the perfect thing to make on a weeknight because it only takes about an hour to make, most of which is cooking time so you really only have to spend about 15 minutes on it.

  1. To make the tofu, preheat the oven to 400F degrees.
  2. Oil a sheet pan, and toss the tofu with the tamari and avocado oil and spread out on the sheet pan. Bake for about 45 minutes or until it is starting to brown and get a little crisp at the edges.  Remove from oven and let cool.  Remove from the oven, place in a bowl, and combine with BBQ sauce.
  3. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a bowl.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the arugula, onions, peppers, corn, avocado and dressing.  Toss to coat, and divide between 4 plates.
  5. Top each off with some of the BBQ tofu, and serve!
