Vegan, Gluten-free and delicious Quinoa Crusted Tofu Salad with Asian Coleslaw is perfect for that healthy weeknight dinner.
Tofu salad is my favorite way to eat tofu. I am not tofu fan otherwise but I think they make an excellent easy protein addition to salads. This Quinoa Crusted Tofu Salad with Asian Coleslaw is full of flavor and texture, a surprise in every bite.
The quinoa crusted tofu has been a long time family favorite as a starter. And I started using it in a salad to make a complete meal out of it recently. And I think it was one of the best decisions ever. The additions of vegetables make it a very satisfying meal. And it is so easy to make that I don’t mind fixing it for myself even if I am having one of those solo dinner nights.
It also works very well as the salad and starter combo for dinner or lunch party. The tofu looks and tastes fancy enough, even though it is really simple to put together. And oh I love the fact that Asian coleslaw brings a burst of color to the dish.
I also love the dressing and use it in various other salads. Like I have mentioned before, Asian flavors are comfort food for me. Soya, Peanut butter, toasted sesame oil, birds eye chili and ginger. Really what’s not to love here! I have used fish sauce here but if you are vegetarian, a good quality soya sauce works very well. (Use soya for the vegan version).
A friendly tip – when you make this dressing, make a large bottle and store it in the fridge. I keep pouring it on all my salads till it lasts and it makes me very happy. None of us at home seem to be able to get enough of it.
