Dukkah Tofu Salad

This delicious lunch is packed with 25g of protein for fast muscle repair and long-lasting satiety. Tofu can also give a major boost to your weight-loss plan. If you’ve tried tofu before and thought it was pretty tasteless, yore not alone. Give it another try with this recipe: the dukkah adds so much flavour and the grill ensures it crisps up – delicious!





  • 300g hard tofu
  • 1 tablespoon almond dukkah
  • ½ lemon
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chili flakes
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 10 green olives, sliced
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon flaked almonds (optional)
  • 2 stems raw broccolini, roughly chopped
  • 1 small red capsicum, deseeded and chopped


  1. Heat a sandwich grill or griddle pan on high. Slice tofu into thick strips and dry with a paper towel. 
  2. Sprinkle over dukkah and rub to cover the tofu. 
  3. Add tofu to sandwich grill and cook for 5-10 minutes until it begins to char slightly.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the salad by assembling olives, tomatoes, broccolini, capsicum and almonds (if using) over a bed of spinach.
  5. Make the dressing by mixing together chili flakes, lemon juice and vinegar.
  6. To finish, top the salad with tofu, and drizzle over zesty dressing.


Make sure you use hard tofu for this dish, not silken!
