Ingredients:

For grilled tofu:

  • 1 pkg tofu
  • 2 packets stevia
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • 1 tbsp ginger
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

For salad dressing:

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar (could use rice vinegar)
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup light (reduced sodium) tamari (for gluten free, or use soy sauce)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp crushed chilis
  • 2 packets stevia
  • 1 tbsp garlic (or 3 cloves)
  • 1 tbsp ginger

 

Directions

  1.  Drain and press between paper towels 1 package of tofu, cut into cubes.
  2. In a small bowl, pour sesame oil over cubed tofu, add stevia, garlic, ginger, and shake bowl until evenly coated.
  3. On a grill pan (gives those nice grill lines), using cooking spray (helps keep the fat content down), grill tofu on med-high heat, flipping once to ensure evenly cooked.  Pull off heat and place on plate/tupperware in fridge to cool (salad is served cold).
  4. In a salad shaker (or other easily mixable container), add all the salad dressing ingredients together and shake vigorously.  The salad dressing will separate when not in use, because regular salad dressings have emulsifiers and stabilizers to keep the oil and water portions emulsed.  We aren’t adding those chemicals to just shake before using :)
  5. Use favorite salad (I like the Spring mix for this – has a nice earthy flavour), place cubes on top, and pour 1 – 2 tbsp of dressing on top.
  6. Enjoy!
