Special thanks to my coworker RB for giving me the idea for this recipe.

I’ve submitted this recipe to this week’s Healthy Vegan Friday contest.

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeño, minced
  • 1 cup each of red bell pepper and zucchini, finely diced
  • 1 (15 oz.) can low-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 kiwi, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup pineapple, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 cups or 1/2 block tofu, drained and patted dry, finely cubed
  • 2 heads romaine lettuce, washed with ends cut off
  • 1 small lime, cut in half
  • nutritional yeast (optional)
  • hot sauce (optional)
Steps
  1. Combine all ingredients, except the tofu, romaine lettuce, lime and optional ingredients (nutritional yeast and hot sauce).
  2. Squeeze the lime over the veggie and bean mixture and mix well.
  3. Next, take a piece of romaine lettuce and layer veggies and then tofu. If you desire, top with nutritional yeast and hot sauce.
