Seared Tofu with Mango-Avocado Salsa

Treat tofu like fish then top with a citrusy salsa of avocado, mango, and lime. This dish can be prepared ahead of time – just reheat the tofu on the grill or on a grill pan or skillet and serve. Feel free to use fish, tempeh or seitan should also work well. Wrap it up in a tortilla if you’d like,  just cut the tofu into smaller pieces, grab some tortillas, and load them up.  

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp. oil

  • 1/2 lb. tofu, sliced 1"-thick and pressed to remove water (extra firm, high protein)
