Blackened Tofu Caesar Salad

Blackened Tofu Caesar Salad

Basically I took the caesar salad recipe from "The Uncheese Cookbook" p.161 and switched stuff around a bit

1 cup low fat soy milk
1/4 cup lemon juice
6 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
put ingredients in a blender on high, let liquefy, set aside.

similar to p.161 "The Uncheese Cookbook"
6 slices wheat bread cut up into crouton like squares;)
2 teaspoons nutrional yeast powder
3 teaspoons garlic powder

Oven at 350 for about 25 minutes. I put these on the salad while they were warm. Butthe left overs with these cooled and crunchy were better.

I had this recipe to go from.

3 tablespoons onion powder
3 tablespoons garlic powder
4 tablespoons cayenne pepper ( I like it spicy )
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup olive oil ( or oil of your choice )
one package extra firm tofu cut into 1inch slabs

Combine first four ingredients in a shallow dish. Dip tofu slabs into 1 cup oil then coat with the seasonings.
Place in frying pan until blackened on both sides. (about 5 mins on each side)
Now, if you don't use a hot iron skillet then you will have to deal with massive amounts of smoke, like I did;)

Romaine lettuce, chopped carrots, and tomatoes with black pepper. Add blackened tofu, caesar dressing, then croutons and a little more black pepper.
I didn't take photos when I first tried it(saturday for lunch) but I had leftovers last night for dinner and it was even better. These pictures from from last night. They aren't the best quality, sorry;)
