The Japanese come with some simple and tasty new ideas for Vegans and Vegetarians!
I just discovered this recipe. It is basically a Cabrese-style salad.
The twist is that the cheese is replaced by tofu!
Vegan Italian Tofu Salad:
-Tofu (kinu dofu): half/200g
-Tomato: 1 large
-Sweet basil: 10 leaves
Wine vinegar (white): 1/4 cup
White wine: 1/4 cup
Salt: 1/3 teaspoon
Whole black pepper: 3 grains, crushed
Garlic: 1/2 clove
Fresh red chili: 1/2
Olive oil (EVO): 1．1/4～ tablespoon
Onion: 15 g, grated
-Cut tofu into 1 cm thick slices.
-After taking out the stem part, cut tomatoes into half moons.
-Leave tofu tomatoes in a bowl full of iced water.
-Crush and mince garlic. Mix it with the wine vinefar, white wine, salt, pepper and chili. Cook in a pan until the lot has reduced to half. Let cool.
-Take tomatoes and tofu out the iced water (drain as much water as possible) and drop them in a large bowl. Add onion and olive oil. Mix well.
-Place tomatoes, tofu and basil alternately as shown in picture on a srving dish. Pour dressing all over.
-For calorie conscious vegetarians, tofu has almost none while chesse has loads of them!

Tofu is my daughter’s favorite. I am sure she will enjoy this a lot because she doesn’t like cheese except the cheese on the pizza.
I will come with an idea with mini-tofu pizzas soon!
My regards to your daugter!
Great recipe! Thank you for sharing!
Cheers, my friend!You are most welcome!
Thanks , Robert , for this so refreshing vegan tofu salad. I love it.
More coming soon, dear Elin!
Well, this is different! But perhaps not as surprising as all that. Did you know that tofu is called ‘formaggio di soia’ in Italian? Great minds think alike, I guess!
I didn’t know that!
