I developed this with my personal trainer to meet my nutritional needs after a morning workout. It packs such a nutritional punch, and gives me the protein I need without the meat. Vegan, Low-Carb, High-Protein, Gluten-, Dairy- and Egg-Free

Thanks for posting this recipe. I've made it several times now and it makes a very satisfying lunch which keeps me full all afternoon. It's very tasty, although sometimes i find the lemon too acidic for my taste and water it down a bit. I've also tried it with the tofu that comes pre-marinated on days when i'm in a big rush, and that is very tasty too, although obviously adds a bit of sugar to the calorie count. It keeps well all day and i've even forgotten it overnight and eaten it a day and a half after preparing it and it kept very well. cheers :)

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Marinate the tofu in the soy sauce and black pepper for as long as you can - overnight is good but sometimes 10 minutes in the morning is all I can do!
  2. Pan-fry (or microwave) until liquid has evaporated and tofu is starting to brown.
  3. Toss together all the vegetables with the lemon juice and olive oil. When the tofu has cooled to room temperature, toss it through the salad.
  4. If packing in a lunchbox, skip adding the lemon juice and olive oil, and just pack the 1/4 lemon wedge in the box with the salad. Tastes almost the same and saves hassle.
