Recipe: Curried Tofu Salad

This recipe uses the tofu salad by serving it over greens, but you can also stuff it in a pita with some lettuce for a delicious sandwich.

1/2 package extra firm tofu, pressed and drained, cut into small chunks, misted with olive oil, and baked at 375 degrees for 20 min and cooled. (See here for full tofu directions) - usually I make this the day before.

Mix with:

1/2 c plain nonfat Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp mayo (or equivalent)
1 tsp curry powder
1 cup halved red grapes
freshly ground pepper

(if you have it, you can add in some thinly sliced celery too)

Place in fridge until ready to use.

Toss:
1 package mixed greens
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 Tbsp lemon juice

Put the greens on plates and scoop the tofu salad into center. 

Serve with bread or pita/tortilla wedges.

Is there something else to substitute for the curry powder?

By Anonymous michele, at 6:01 PM  

If it's just that you don't have curry powder on hand, the substitute would be:

1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground cumin powder
1/2 tsp ground coriander powder
1/2 red chili powder, to taste

(And then use 1 tsp of this mixture for recipe.)

If you don't like the taste of curry, you can try the above without the turmeric and let us know if that tasted ok.

This is a very healthy vegetarian diet. Iโ€™m going to try this too. My family will enjoy a brand new dish.

Looks tasty! Can't wait to try this out. Thanks for sharing!

I tried this without the tumeric and curry, although its not that creamy, it is still delicious and very satisfying.

For a chewier tofu, try freezing it. Then, when ready to use it, thaw and squeeze as much liquid out as possible. To my certain knowledge, this method has turned some tofu-haters completely around...

This sounds great! I might give it a try tomorrow! But, do you think it would work with plain yogurt instead of greek yogurt? I can't buy that where I live...

Greek yogurt is a thicker strained version of plain yogurt. You could place plain yogurt in cheesecloth in strainer over a bowl in the fridge to remove some of the whey and create a thicker yogurt. Or, if you can purchase a brand of yogurt that is thicker where you live (no matter what it is called), that would work.
