Ingredients

  • 14 oz firm tofu (ideally get fresh tofu from the supermarket)
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • ½ bunch radishes
  • ½ medium cucumber
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 small tin pineapple (small tin = 8 oz = 225g = ¼)

For the dressing

Instructions

  • Press out some excess moisture of the tofu block, then cut it into small cubes (about one square centimeter). In a pan heat up some oil at a medium heat and in the tofu goes. Fry for about 15 minutes until golden brown. Multitasking challenge: make sure you stir every now and then (and add some salt) while you prep the rest of the salad. You can do it, bring it on!
  • Next up: wash your veggies!
  • Slice the radishes.
  • Cut the cucumber lengthwise in half, remove the seeds with a small spoon and cube what’s left.
  • Cut the pineapple into small chunks as well.
  • Throw everything into a bowl along with the spinach and bean sprouts.

Now to the dressing

  • Combine olive oil, honey, sriracha, lime juice, salt and pepper and toss it into the salad.
  • Get the tofu cubes and place them in a separate bowl. Add them to each salad serving. (If you throw them right into the salad they’ll get mushy quickly).
  • Also for garnish, cut the chili and roughly crush or chop the peanuts. Sprinkle them over the salad when serving.
  • Enjoy!
