Thai Kale & Chilli Peanut Salad

We love a good salad and this recipe is definitely one of our favourites. It’s so good for you as well with at least 3 of your 5 a day! The Thai Chilli peanut dressing is amazing and can be used on anything – so you can make it up in bulk and have it as a salad & veg topper throughout the week.

It’s sometimes a struggle to find really good tofu, for this salad we used Tofoo Co Naked organic tofu, which tastes amazing!

We hope you love this as much as we did!

 

Salad ingredients:

  • 2 Handfuls of kale
  • 6 Radishes, sliced
  • 1 Red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Carrots, grated
  • Half a lime

 

For the fried tofu:

  • 1 packet of Naked Tofoo, chopped into squares
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 a Chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs

 

Thai Chilli peanut dressing:

  • 1 Chilli, finely chopped (only if you want it extra hot, if you don’t like hot food, our Chilli Peanut butter will be quite enough!!)
  • 1 tbsp Nuoi Foods Chilli Peanut Butter
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • Pinch salt
  • Half lime, squeezed
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp agave nectar
  • 2 tbsp hot water

 

Method:

  1. Put the kale into a large bowl and squeeze the lime juice over the leaves. Break the leaves down with your hands (kind of like a massage) for around two minutes
  2. Add your grated carrots, onion and radishes – mix together and set aside
  3. Then you will need to cook your tofu. Mix the Tofu, oil, chilli, garlic and seasoning together in a pan
  4. Put on the heat and fry until browned
  5. Set the tofu aside to cool
  6. For the peanut dressing, put all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk together with a fork until combined
  7. Add your tofu to the salad and top with your chilli peanut dressing
  8. Enjoy!
