Baked Tofu and Buckwheat Salad Recipe 2011-05-16 11:11:26

Ingredients

  1. 1/3 c cooked buckwheat groats (not Kasha)
  2. 75 g firm tofu (or protein of choice)
  3. 1 carrot, sliced
  4. 1 tomato, sliced
  5. 3/4 c cucumber slices
  6. 1/3 c fennel sliced
  7. 50 g avocado, sliced and cubed
  8. 1 c butter lettuce (or lettuce of choice)
  9. 1 olive, sliced

Directions

Cook buckwheat (I cooked 1/3 c raw buckwheat groats with 2 c water). Bring to a boil, and simmer for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 F. Cube tofu and mix with 1/2 tsp olive oil. I also added 1 tsp curry but you can totally omit that if you don't like it. Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes. Now wash, peel and chop/slice your vegetables and place in a bowl. This took me 20 minutes so my buckwheat and tofu was done just as I finished up the slicing. Drain buckwheat and measure 1/3 c cooked and add to bowl. Chop the tofu to smaller slices and add to the salad. Dress the salad however you like, I ate it without anything so the veggies stay crisp and fresh.
