Quick Vegan Greek Tofu Salad

vegan greek tofu saladFor this meal chefs recommend using fried, baked or steamed tofu, because raw tofucould be dangerous for your health – can cause food poisoning.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb firm (baked or steamed) tofu
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 small tomatoes
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1 cup black olives
  • spinach leaves or other greens

Preparation will not take a lot of time for you.

Cut 1 block tofu into small chunks the size of dice. Press the chunks gently with towels or cloths to absorb any excess water. Steam raw tofu for 5 minutes to kill food pathogens if you’re not going to bake it.Then take a bowl and mix the remaining ingredients (except spinach leaves and vegetables). Thus you will get the marinade. Pour it over the tofu and let sit for at least an hour. Now you have time to chop vegetables, stir them into the tofu mixture and toss. Serve as a salad atop a bed of fresh spinach leaves or other greens.
