Hi everyone, I haven’t posted a recipe in a while, but I am continuing to cook and modify.  My commitment for this year is to lose weight and get in shape, and I have been spending lots of time at the gym, swimming, and Zumba.  I bought an activity monitor, and it sure keeps me motivated.  I’m going to try and be more consistent here with new recipes.  Today I’m back with a simple and fast recipe for an egg-less salad that’s quite yummy.  It makes a great lunch, and it’s great with soup for a simple dinner.  Hope you like it.

What you need:

  • 1 block of firm tofu, pressed for at least 30 minutes (instructions can be found on the how-to-page tab above)
  • 2 medium kosher dill pickles, finely minced
  • 2 scallions, green parts only, minced
  • 5 celery stalks, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced OR garlic powder to taste
  • 2 tbsp pickle juice
  • 1/3 cup reduced fat Vegenaise
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • if you’re a mustard lover, add 2 tbsp of dijon mustard

What to do:

  1. Cut tofu into small cubes, set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients, then gently mix in tofu.
  3. Serve atop salad or on bread with lettuce and tomato.

4 servings.  Weight Watcher Plus Points value:  4

When I originally posted this, I did not include the recipe or the Weight Watchers Points Plus value.  So I’m going to share it with you now because this is a dish that you should definitely try, and it’s sure to please even those who are not crazy for tofu.

Recipe:

  1. Press 1 1b of firm tofu  (you know how to do that, right?  If not, see below*) .
  2. Place tofu on a serving dish and spread 1 mashed medium avocado on top.
  3. Mix together 6 chopped green onions, 1 tbsp sesame oil, 2 tbsp soy sauce and pour on top.

Guess what?  You’re done.  Slice into 4 pieces and serve over lettuce and tomato, if desired.

4 servings.  Weight Watcher Plus Points value:  6 ~ using light tofu will decrease points by 1 and using half the avocado decreases points by 1 more.

PRESSING TOFU

Place a colander in a clean sink and place your tofu block in it.  Cover it with several layers of papertowels and place something heavy on it like a big can or jar.  Let it press for 20 minutes.  Now you know the secret to great tofu!
