Recipe: BBQ Tofu and Broccoli Salad!

Mix this up a few hours ahead of serving, it helps the flavour if all the seasonings are allowed to meld.

1 lb extra firm tofu, chopped into 1/4" cubes
2 large bunches of fresh broccoli, washed and chopped into small florets
1 large sweet red onion, minced
2 carrots, coarsley grated
1 cup lightly toasted pumpkin or sunflower kernals
1 cup raisins or other chopped dried fruit
1 cup vegan mayo (Vegenaise or Nayonnaise)
1/3 cup barbeque sauce (homemade or storebought)
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp liquid sweetener (agave nectar or maple syrup)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add the tofu cubes and brown on all sides over medium heat, stirring frequently. Add the barbeque sauce and continue cooking for several minutes, until the sauce begins to caramelize. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Place all ingredients, except for the seeds/kernals, in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. Chill, and add the kernals/seeds just before serving.

Serves 6 - 8
