2 tomatoes, finely chopped

2 avocados, peeled and diced

2 cups frozen pineapple

2 cups coriander, finely chopped

1 red onion, finely chopped

½ jalapeno, finely chopped

Juice from 2 limes

Pink Himalayan salt and pepper

 

INGREDIENTS FOR CREAMY ALMOND BUTTER & GINGER SAUCE

1 tsp maple syrup

1/2 -1 tsp fresh grated ginger

Pinch of pink Himalayan salt

Method
  1. Prepare the tofu marinade in a bowl or glass dish with a lid.
  2. Place the tofu strips in the marinade and coat evenly. The longer you leave them to marinade, the more they will soak up the flavours. 
  3. Pan fry the tofu for a few minutes on each side until browned and crispy.
  4. Combine all the salsa ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  5. Blend all the almond butter and ginger sauce ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy.
  6. Load your lettuce up with the veggies, sprouts and tofu, top up with salsa and sauce, and enjoy!
