Summer Salad with Tofu

I made a wonderful dinner tonight using a variety of cooked and raw vegetables and tofu.  It was delicious, nutritious and very satisfying!

First I sautéed 1/2 a sweet onion in some olive oil.

I added 1/3 of a brick of tofu (cut into cubes) to the onions and olive oil and simmered on low.

Once the onions started to turn translucent I added some balsamic vinegar to the onions and tofu and continued to let it simmer.

For the salad, I started with some green leaf lettuce

I added 1/3 a bulb of fennel sliced very thin

1/2 a red pepper, sliced

5-6 asparagus spears, steamed and cut into 1″ pieces

4 artichoke hearts arranged around the side of the plate

4 roasted Brussels sprouts, cut in half (for an amazing recipe see my earlier post). also arranged around the side of the plate

Lastly I poured the sautéed tofu and onions over the salad.  The oil and vinegar drizzled on top making a delicious dressing

This is a wonderful summertime meal!
