Sluttishly Vegan: Passionfruit tofu salad

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. I always seem to think of a pithy retort days after an argument has finished, get a brainwave moments after I've submitted my copy to an editor and suddenly figure out the answer to a brain-numbing question as I walk out of the exam hall.

Recipe writing is no exception to this rule - it's often when I'm eating the spoils of my writing that I think of something fabulous that would partner it perfectly. This salad is very, very simple. It's just something I bodged together for lunch one day. Pomegranate seeds would make a great addition - both for sweetness and for their pretty pink looks. Unfortunately, as you can tell from the picture, I only thought of this after I'd made (and wolfed down) this salad.

You could add any vegetables you liked really, although this dressing is quite punchy so it's great for livening up shy little vegetables like lamb's lettuce. Just make sure you think of them before you make it!

Passionfruit tofu salad (serves 1)

You'll need:
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 1tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1tsp pomegranate molasses (optional)
  • 1tsp soy sauce
  • Seeds and pulp of 1 ripe passion fruit
  • A small bag of lamb's lettuce
  • A handful of tofu pieces (I used Cauldron marinated tofu)
  • Some mint leaves, torn up
  • Pomegranate seeds (optional)
Make it!
  • Stir together the oil, vinegar, pomegranate molasses, soy and passion fruit.
  • Dress the leaves with the passion fruit dressing. Sprinkle over the tofu and mint leaves. And some pomegranate seeds, if you thought to buy them.
