MONDAY EATS| Chinese spiced tofu salad

Hellooo,

I woke up feeling extra energised today. Probably because my new job I just got πŸ˜› as a fitness instructor tho ! Hence why I was feeling a little extra about my lunch today. I thought, hey I want that “fit girl eats” picture once I’ve finished preparing my lunch.

I don’t know about you, but asian related foods are my absolute favourites, I could do chinese, indian and thai anyday, anymeal. So today, I woke up, I marinated the tofu, went to get some more goods and ended up having a mouth watering lunch !


I love to fuel my body with nutrient dense foods and always make sure my meals are well balanced to keep me full, and also very tasty so I’m not craving any junk. This salad has it all ! Lots of greens for that health, nutritious kick to keep you glowing, olive oil for some healthy fats, tofu which will provide you good source of plant-based protein and calcium – just what your body will thank you for ! Also, note that when being on a plant-based diet you must ensure you consume enough of calcium and tofu will definitely help you with that πŸ™‚

What do you need ?

For the base

I lied my bowl with crazy loads of greens – kale and spinach, added cucumber for some extra health and water.

The carbs

  • 50g black rice
  • fresh coriander
  • ginger
  • chopped garlic
  • seeds*

First I cooked my rice and then I simply tossed that together in a pan on a low heat.

The king – tofu

  • 200g tofu
  • 1tsp Chinese five spice
  • 1tsp agave syrup
  • 1tsp soy sauce
  • 1tsp olive oil

I marinated the tofu in everything above combined for around 3 hours (best overnight), then I set my oven to 200 degrees Celsius and baked my tofu for around 30 minutes/ until crispy.


Now, I just put everything in one bowl, added lime on a side because I thing it compliments the whole dish perfectly and enjoyed myself to this amazing bowl of yumminess.
