Asian Broccoli Ginger Slaw with Grilled Tofu

A quick soy-lime dressing adds serious oomph to this crunchy slaw. The beauty of a slaw made with heartier ingredients such as broccoli, carrots and radishes is that you can toss it in the dressing before leaving the house and it won’t get soggy. If you don’t have a portable grill, you can also cook the tofu in a skillet or grill pan before leaving the house.

    1½ tbsp peeled and minced ginger

    1 tsp sriracha

    1¼ lb broccoli florets, thinly sliced lengthwise

    5 radishes, halved and thinly sliced

    1 carrot, peeled and julienned

    ¾ cup fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped

    ½ tsp sea salt + additional to taste

    ground black pepper, to taste

    1 14-oz block organic extra-firm tofu, cut crosswise into ½-inch slices

To bowl, add broccoli, radishes, carrot and cilantro and toss to coat; season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a large zip-top bag or container; refrigerate.
