Spicy Tofu Salad with Sriracha Dressing
The dressing in this recipe is really creamy and spicy - a bit like a hot, spicy mayonnaise and so works really well with the tofu. The salad can be made with any of your favourite veggies.
Instructions
  1. Whisk together the dressing ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Mix together the olive oil, tamari and sriracha for the tofu. Place the tofu in a baking dish and pour over the mix and ensure all the tofu is coated.
  3. Bake in the oven on 180C for 20 minutes.
  4. Assemble all the ingredients for the salad in a large bowl. Garnish with coriander. Add the tofu and serve the dressing in a bowl.

Asian Cabbage Salad with Roasted Cashews

Print Recipe
Asian Cabbage Salad
This has the same vegetables as the recipe for coleslaw but without the mayonnaise. Instead it has a hot and spicy dressing which makes this salad light and refreshing. Cabbage contains powerful anti-cancer compounds known as glucosinates. Studies demonstrate more anti-cancer activity with the cabbage family than any other vegetable and therefore this is a good reason to include them as often as possible in your diet.
Instructions
  1. Put all of the prepared vegetables into a large bowl and toss so that they are all combined.
  2. Toast the cashew nuts in a pan for 5 minutes.
  3. Place the sauce ingredients into a small blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss so that they are all covered.
  5. Add the cashew nuts and garnish with fresh coriander and slice red chilli. Serve.

Chickpeas in a curried sauce with brown rice, sauteed garlic spinach and broccoli. This is an easy, highly nutritious main course packed with protein and fibre. Buddha bowls are very fluid and you can add your favorite veggies and grains. Here I've added some broccoli which aids in detoxification and goes well with the curry. The cabbage gives it some freshness and crunch.
