Quick and Easy, Vegan BBQ Tofu on Kale Salad

Quick and Easy, Vegan BBQ Tofu on Kale Salad

This is a great weekday meal. It was super fast, I had everything on hand and it incorporates a lot of kale which is just so good for you. I find it difficult to get enough greens, especially raw greens, but this is a great way to eat a whole bunch. The BBQ tofu idea is not my own, I saw it on Health.Happy.Life. I just used store bough BBQ sauce to make it easier.


Salad

  • a bunch of kale, de-ribbed, ripped into small pieces and washed
  • 2 carrots- shredded with a vegetable peeler
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 ts salt
  • 1/2 lemon
Mix the kale with the salt and lemon juice. Squish it in well with your hands. This is an important step as it really breaks down the kale fibers making it less chewy and more enjoyable to eat raw. Mix in carrot and pepper.

Tofu
