Having returned from a week-long business trip, I needed a quick and healthy lunch. I’d not shopped so had a look around at what I had in the house and ‘fridge.
I also wanted something tangy. Something salty, maybe oriental.
So here is what I came up with.
The recipe makes about 4 portions.
1 pack of Smoked Tofu (drained and chopped into bite sized pieces)
1 Med Brown Onion chopped
1/2 Cucumber (washed and cut into chunks)
1 Med Avocado (peeled and chopped)
1 small Red Chilli, (deseeded and finely chopped)
1/2 bunch of Coriander (chopped)
1 x Pack of Mixed Grains or cooked Rice, Quinoa and Chic Peas.
1 Tbsp Sunflower seeds or Sesame seeds
1 Little Gem Lettuce (washed and separated into individual leaves), or any washed leaves.
1/2 cup of Soy or Tamari sauce
1/4 Tsp of Guar Gum
2 Tbsp Ume Seasoning
3 Cloves of Garlic
1/2 of the chopped Coriander
2 Tbsp Japanese rice wine vinegar
1/2 of the chopped Chilli
1 Tbsp Agave or maple syrup.
2 Tsp Dijon Mustard
1/2 Tap Black Pepper
Mix all the salad ingredients, including half of the coriander and half of the chilli. Keep the seeds to sprinkle over the top as a garnish.
Make the dressing by blitzing the ingredients in a blender, let down with a little water if too thick.
Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and allow to stand for a minimum of 20 mins.
Use the salad leaves as a base. Please the tossed salad on top and sprinkle with the last of the coriander and seeds.
