Spicy Salad with Tahini Dressing


  • 2 handfuls of Arugula
  • 7 Oz Firm Tofu (half a block)
  • 1/2 Cucumber
  • 1/4 White Onion
  • 4 Radishes
  • 1/4 Cup Sunflower Seeds
  • 1/4 Cup Nutritional Yeast

Let's start with the tofu! Crumble with your hands into a small non-stick skillet. Cook all of the excess water out on high heat. Then add Nutritional Yeast, Soy Sauce and a generous amount of cracked Black Pepper flipping around a few times to make sure the tofu is evenly coated and cooked. Set aside.

Chop the Cucumber, Onion, and Radishes for the salad and the Garlic Clove for the dressing.

In a small bowl, combine Water, Tahini, Olive Oil, Apple Cider Vinegar, Garlic, Salt Black Pepper and a dash of Turmeric. Using a small whisk or fork, stir swiftly until smooth.

Divide the Arugula onto two plates. Add all of the chopped toppings, tofu, and sprinkle the Sunflower Seeds over the top. Serve with Tahini dressing!
