Two of my favorite foods are roasted vegetables and hummus! This salad combines it all! First I roast the veggies then I add them to a bed of chopped romaine lettuce mixed with hummus and Voila! I have a healthy salad under 400 calories. This 400 calories even includes some high protein tofu from Trader Joe’s so you’re getting your protein as well. I love making this recipe in my Oster Digital Toaster Oven. It makes it so much easier, saves more energy in my home and doesn’t heat up my kitchen like it would in the regular oven. Try cooking more stuff in your toaster oven. Check out this cool cookbook The Gourmet Toaster Oven.
Roasted Veggie + Tofu Salad with Hummus
1/3 cup chopped sweet potato
2 small tomatoes, chopped
3 mushrooms (crimini, button or 1 Portabella would work), sliced 1/4″ thick
1/2 cup diced high protein tofu
1 TBSP olive oil
dash garlic powder
1/2 cup chopped romaine lettuce
1 TBSP hummus
1. After chopping all the vegetables and tofu place on a baking sheet (I actually use my Oster Digital Toaster Oven for roasting). Drizzle on the olive oil and sprinkle on the salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix up with hands til fully coated.
2. Place in oven or Oster Digital Toaster Oven for 20-25 minutes at 350 F, or until everything is tender and ready to eat to your liking.
3. While those are cooking, chop your romaine and mix with the hummus until the leaves are well coated. Place on plate.
4. Once the roasted veggies and tofu are ready place them on top of the romaine/hummus and serve!
