I love cooking with Lisa. There's always lots of wine (yeah, I had a couple glasses of red wine before recording the vid- don't judge me lol), fun conversation, and her kitchen is the absolute best!

In this video, we're making a tofu salad using firm tofu, plenty of delicious vegetables, and a simple and flavorful marinade.  Lisa has tried making tofu at home a few times but didn't get the results she wanted.  I came over to show her some of my tofu tricks and she and her hubby really enjoyed it. Success!

To save time, our tofu marinade and dressing are the same recipe.

Inspired by the Asian tofu salad on Fitness Magazine's website

I adjusted the measurements, omitted the canola oil, added some onions and substituted agave nectar for honey (to make it vegan). I also didn't want to deal with the marinade mess of frying it with the tofu, so I decided to pour the marinade on top of the tofu instead of frying it with it. Please update me when you try this recipe and thanks so much for watching. :-)
