Fiber and protein and a liberal dose of juicy red pomegranate deliciousness is what you get from this Broccoli Tofu Salad. Whether you are trying a new detox salad diet or you want to eat salads because the summer heat makes the thought of heavy food revolting, this broccoli tofu salad is just the thing for you!
The other day, I received an email from a reader thanking for a cauliflower recipe and how she had never cooked a cauliflower before. Like ever! Growing up, we had so much cauliflower at home, ate them as street-food from hawkers, ate them at fancy restaurants, I never imagined that cauliflower could be so, alien, a concept elsewhere in the world! That is one of my favorite things about blogging; interacting with so many of you and learning new things that never cease to amaze me!
Cooking cauliflower might not have been an alien concept to us but tofu and broccoli definitely topped the list! While broccoli was just a Martian (Inhabitants of Planet Mars are green in color, aren’t they?) cousin of the humble Earthling cauliflower and Tofu was just glorified everyday Indian paneer ( at least, that’s what it was propagandized to be), it was introduced into the Indian markets not until a few years ago. Even when it was introduced, it was priced so high that it graced the elite households only or on a special occasion or celebration in a middle-class home. Ya! I know! Broccoli and tofu for a celebration! I cannot stop laughing about it now 😀
Back to the broccoli tofu salad recipe, did I tell you that the mister and me are trying our best to eat healthy? I think I did. Anyway, salads are a part of our dinners on most days of the week now. Some days, it is just some sliced cucumbers with salt and a squeeze of lemon, some days it is dressed up cucumbers like this one here and then there are days there is a nice fancy salad like this broccoli tofu salad.
Did you notice that? That I called this salad, fancy? Probably because they were such grand ingredients when I first learnt of their existence, a broccoli tofu salad will always be fancy for me! 🙂
Oh! There are soups too that decorate our meals on some days but for now, here is the recipe for:
