A Salad which is Healthy
All salads are healthy, right?
Well, not really. You go to a restaurant and most of the salads you can order are full of cheese, salt, oil…
This is a 100% healthy, 100% oil-free salad!
It’s what a salad is meant to be, a health food and nothing less!
All those vegetables have every nutrient that you need. Especially vitamin K, so important for your bones that you find in greens.
And for a bit of extra protein (and flavor), I added tofu. And Omega-3 rich walnuts.
Also, nutritional yeast, rich in every B vitamin, especially B12.
Its pure nutrition, nothing else!
What do you need for this Broccoli & Tofu Green Salad?
This salad is just so simple. I used green salad (in this recipe romaine lettuce) for a base, but you can use whatever greens suit you best, then I add some cucumber, cherry tomatoes for extra color, some nutritious broccoli florets, green onions, parsley, dill. And of course some super tasty, protein-rich tofu cubes.
Feel free to add some spinach, carrot, peppers or whatever you like the most or find at the market.
Season with some nutritional yeast and freshly squeezed lemon juice. To add a finishing touch sprinkle a handful or two of ground walnuts on top and enjoy!
Why you should eat more broccoli?
Broccoli belongs to the family of cruciferous vegetables, such as cabbage, kale, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower.
- Broccoli is a powerhouse of various vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, K, A, and folate.
- Broccoli contains bioactive micronutrients, such as sulforaphane which helps in prevention and fighting cancer cells.
- It is also rich in antioxidants that keep inflammation away and have other health-promoting effects.
- Broccoli has high fiber content that boosts your good gut bacteria growth and improves digestion.

- Mix the tofu cubes and soy sauce in a bowl. Put them in a pan and cook for about 5 mins, stirring occasionally. Set them aside to cool.
- Place the broccoli florets in a saucepan with boiling water for 3 mins. Take them out and rinse under cold water. Drain well.

To preserve the nutrients of the broccoli florets, boil them for only 3 mins. Then rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process, so they can keep their bright green color. Drain them well or dry with kitchen paper so the salad stays fresh and not watery.
