Pardon the iPhone photos this afternoon! This week I took a change from my usual bring-leftovers-for-lunch routine, and actually planned a lunch for the week. It’s a take on the Panera BBQ Chopped Chicken Salad, sans chicken.
I pan grilled pressed cubes of tofu after rolling them in paprika, and then let the hickory smoked bbq sauce cook for a few minutes in the pan with the tofu (coating all pieces).
I then let the tofu mix chill overnight before coming up with this delicious combo:
2 cups of romaine (should probably be more)
1/5 block of lite firm tofu with hickory barbecue sauce
1/4 cup black beans
1/4 cup corn
1/4 cup mango peach salsa (YUM)
1/2 serving (or 9 chips) of guiltless gourmet tortilla chips
Throw it all together for the above deliciousness! I’m totally loving this lunch, and would recommend maybe a squeeze of lime juice to really step it up over the top.
