Tofu & Bean Salad!

This is kind of like a taco salad - But loaded with fiber and protein - and it's meatless!  You can change up the ingredients a bit to suit you, but that will change the nutrition information as well.....   This is perfect for lunch or even a snack when you need some energy!!  Here's what I did -

1 1/2 cups romaine lettuce
1/4 cup black beans (drained/rinsed if you use canned)
1/4 cup chick peas (drained/rinsed if you use canned)
1/5 package firm tofu
4tbsp salsa (I used black bean & corn salsa)
2 medium mushrooms - chopped
about 1 tbsp chopped onion

Roughly chop tofu - sautee with cumin.  Place other ingredients in bowl (lettuce on bottom) - add tofu on top -- and then top with salsa. Dig in!!

  1. I'm not a big cumin fan, but I'd guess you can change out the cumin for just about anything you'd like. I can definitely see it with a Greek seasoning on it - sounds good!
