TOFU, KALE + BROCCOLI BOWL


after a “blah” day at work i felt that some comfort food was in order! ok, sure!… so salads aren’t in most people’s comfort food category but this one is hearty, flavourful and - with a 90’s classic french-onion-dip style dressing – ticks all the boxes for me.

plus – despite having only six main components – this salad bowl packs in over 50g of protein, a solid dose of key minerals calcium and zinc, and a bounty of phytochemicals – winner!


how?

1 cup of cooked brown rice
1 cup of cooked lentils
1 cup of broccoli florets
2 cups of kale, roughly shredded
2 tablespoons of raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1 block of tofu, cubed

for the dressing…

¼ cup of vegan sour cream (I used toffuti)
1 teaspoon of dijon mustard
½ teaspoon of onion powder

pan fry the tofu until golden brown and set aside. sauté off the kale and broccoli until tender (but retaining a little bite and their vibrant colour). toss it all together and drizzle over the creamy french onion style dressing – enjoy!
