Sautéed Tofu Salad

I love sautéed tofu; it gets very chewy and crunchy, and when mixed with spices it can be delicious.

  • 2 cups (250 g) firm tofu, cubed OR 200 g paneer (if using paneer, omit mayonnaise)
  • 3/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Red chili powder to taste
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 cups of fresh spinach (120g) OR 4 cups shredded lettuce (180g)
  • 1 cup of fresh cucumber (130g) (Optional; omit for fewer carbs)
  • 1/2 cup of fresh red bell pepper (75g) (Optional; omit for fewer carbs)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise OR 3/4 extra tbsp coconut oil and 3/4 extra tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Fresh coriander
  • Optional: Chaat masala, to taste
  • Process
    1. In a non-stick pan, melt the coconut oil over medium-high heat. Then add the tofu and all the spices along with 1/2 tbsp lemon juice. Sautée for 15-20 minutes until it is very golden and firm.
    2. Mix all the other ingredients and serve while the tofu is still warm. If you are making this ahead of time, keep the tofu in a separate container and warm up before eating.
