Tofu salad with cottage cheese and pine nuts

I have been following Personal Body Plan for four months now. An online program where you get advice about strength training and eating to develop a healthy lifestyle. They also have a recipe database with a lot of nice recipes, but I didn’t make one of those yet. Until I was looking for a nice salad recipe this week and I found this recipe for a tofu salad.

I wanted to cook with tofu again for a while, but I didn’t do it because I usually find the taste of tofu quite boring and I didn’t find a good way to marinate it. But in this recipe for tofu salad they did have a nice marinate and this made the tofu very tasty.

What do you need (for 1 person)

  • 100 g tofu
  • 75 g cottage cheese
  • 75-100 g lettuce
  • 100 g tomatoes
  • 10 g pine nuts

For the dressing

  • 5 ml sweet soy sauce
  • 10 ml soy sauce
  • 2 ml oil
  • 2 ml lemon juice
  • some chilli pepper
  • some dried ginger

Notes for Fodmappers

If you want to make this recipe low FODMAP you can either use half of the amount of cottage cheese or use another kind of cheese that contains a lower amount of FODMAPs, such as mozzarella or feta. I usually eat cottage cheese in combination with a lactase pill and then I can have more than the low FODMAP portion.

How to prepare the Tofu Salad

  1. Take the tofu out of the package and drain it.
  2. Make the seasoning by mixing all the ingredients together.
  3. Cut the tofu into cubes and put it into the seasoning. Leave it to marinate for at least half an hour.
  4. Put a pan on the stove and let it get hot. Roast the pine nuts. This takes about five minutes. Pay close attention to them, because they can burn really easily.
  5. Take them out of the pan and add some oil/baking spray to the pan.
  6. Bake the tofu for five minutes.
  7. In the meantime put the salad, the tomatoes and the cottage cheese on the plate. Add the baked tofu on top and sprinkle the pine nuts on top
