Today’s post is brought to you by Nasoya but all opinions are 100% mine.
With summer upon us, I am always on the look out for delicious meals that require absolutely no cooking since turning on the stove means the kitchen will be unbearably hot in a matter of minutes. Additionally, since summer time generally means smaller clothing choices and bathing suits, I find myself craving more salads and lighter meals. However many times when making meals like this, I struggle to find ready to eat protein options that keep me full of energy until my next meal.
Luckily, I recently discovered these delicious TofuBaked products from Nasoya that come in three delicious flavors – Chipotle (launching this summer!), Sesame Ginger, and Teriyaki. Not only are they packed with flavor (seriously, they are delicious!), they are ready to eat right out of the package and have a whopping 8 grams of protein per piece with only 80 calories. (2 PointsPlus®) This makes them the perfect candidate for salads and wraps since they couldn’t be more convenient and are a healthy choice you can feel food about eating.
For this Asian inspired salad, I started out with a base of shredded kale, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts. You could use any lettuce, kale, or greens mix you like. From there, I added chopped mangoes, carrots, some cilantro, and the Teriyaki TofuBaked squares. For the dressing I made a quick Asian inspired dressing with almond butter, lime juice, soy sauce, Sriracha, and a touch of Stevia. It’s one of my favorites and works great with the TofuBaked. All in all it took me about 5 minutes to put together and no cooking required. Perfect for summer.
