This is a dish that even my kids honestly, wholeheartedly love. Adding flavour to foods like tofu, which start out quite bland, really helps to spice things up. With minimum effort, you can turn a simple mixed green salad into something super.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
450g firm tofu
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon tamari
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
10g dried wakame
100g mixed salad greens
1 apple, cored and thinly sliced
2 spring onions, chopped
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
baking tray, lined with parchment paper

Method

  1. Pat the tofu dry with some kitchen roll. Line a plate with some kitchen roll and place the tofu on top. Place another small plate on top of the tofu and weight it down with something heavy (a tin of beans always works for me). Leave for 15–30 minutes for the liquid to seep out. Remove the plate and cut the pressed tofu into cubes. Mix the olive oil, tamari, apple cider vinegar and lemon juice together in a small bowl. Pour this over the tofu and leave it to marinate for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Arrange the tofu on the prepared baking tray in a single layer. Depending on how large your cubes are, bake the tofu in the preheated oven for 25–40 minutes until golden.
  3. Meanwhile, soak the dried wakame in tepid water for 10–20 minutes. Pat dry with a tea towel or kitchen roll and coarsely chop. Put the salad greens, apple, spring onions, sesame seeds and wakame in a large bowl and toss with the olive oil and chilli flakes. Top with the baked tofu and serve.

Note

  • Many of us are probably lacking in iodine and that’s exactly what wakame is a good source of. Iodine is needed to help convert food into energy, but also helps to keep the thyroid gland in balance.
