Yes, because we have vegetarian friends too. And we are open minded.

And when you taste it, you adopt it…

Mix all the dressing ingredients and set aside.


In a saucepan, pour the tofu with the marinade and cook over low heat until the liquid is evaporated and the tofu is slightly caramelized. Remove from heat, sprinkle with a small handful of sesame seeds, mix gently and let cool.


Meanwhile, divide the salad on two large plates (baby spinach, sprigs of lamb’s lettuce and rocket salad). Add the chopped spring onion, slices of avocado, the apple cut in pieces, raw beetroot strips, pomegranate seeds, thin slices of radishes and salad seeds.


Finally add the lukewarm caramelized tofu and the dressing just before serving.
