Red rice,mango and tofu salad


I recently co-hosted a health retreat and was asked to post the recipes of what I had catered for on the day. This salad got a lot of great feedback so I'd love to share it with you.


Full of fibre, antioxidants, protein and minerals, this salad is a great vegan (swap the honey for a vegan sweetener if full vegan) meal in itself or as a side to accompany a barbecue or other foods.


Let me know how you go if you make it for your next salad!!


Red rice, mango and tofu salad

Ingredients: Serves 4 - 6

2 cups red rice cooked using absorption method

1 500g block organic non GMO tofu cut into cubes

2 large ripe mangoes peeled and flesh sliced

2 shallots sliced on an angle


Marinade:

3 cloves garlic crushed

1 inch knob of ginger grated

2 Tablespoons raw honey (maple syrup for vegan option)

1/2 c extra virgin olive oil

1/4 c organic apple cider vinegar

Chilli flakes (optional)


Salad dressing:

Juice and zest of 2 large oranges (if the oranges are not that juicy, you may require more)

1/4 c extra virgin olive oil

Salt to season


Method:

1. In a bowl, combine marinade ingredients and tofu, toss well. Ideally refrigerate for several hours or overnight if possible.

2. In a hot fry pan, cook marinated tofu, don't turn too often, let the sides get some colour. Remove from heat.

3. In a jar, mix dressing ingredients and shake well before dressing.

4. Place rice in a salad bowl, toss through the pieces of tofu. Stir dressing through well.

5. Add in the slices of mango and shallots. Gently toss through.

6. Serve.
