Miso Carrot Ribbon Tofu Salad

Carrots can be the main part of a salad, not just an added ingredient!

I have started to make a salad as a meal prep almost every day for lunch, and I always look forward to it! There are so many things you can do with a salad! They don’t even have to have lettuce hardly. In fact, you can make a vegetable the main part of any salad!

Miso-Ginger Carrot Ribbon Tofu Salad recipe

I found whole rainbow carrots at the store and immediately had to buy them! I’ve only ever seen them as baby carrots. Of course I had to think of something creative to do with these beauties!

This carrot salad is beautiful and different, so it definitely stands out on the table! I chose to dress it up with some arugula and tofu. Simplicity that looks impressive! In reality, it takes less than 30 minutes to make!

A peeler like this would be ideal!

Start by removing the tofu from the package and wrapping it in paper towels. Place something heavy over the top to slowly press the liquid out. Next peel the outer skin of the carrots and then with the peeler make thin sliced ribbons from each carrot. Of course you could use a spiralizer but the end result would not be as flat. Be prepared because this takes some prep time.

I got the dressing recipe from My Name is Yeh’s blog post. All you need is some miso paste, ginger, honey, lemon and rice vinegar. Whisk ingredients together and you have a homemade miso-ginger dressing!

Cube the tofu and place in a skillet with some hot coconut oil. Fry for about 5 minutes on medium-high heat.

Combine the carrot ribbons, arugula and fried tofu and sprinkle with almonds. Pour the miso-ginger dressing over the top.

Carrot Ribbon Arugula Salad recipe from Body Compass Discovery's blog

This recipe is both vegan and gluten free. Tofu is not my protein of choice, but I do love it every now and then. I’m also all about a hearty salad bowl, but sometimes I just want something on the lighter side. Enjoy some good eats without getting overly stuffed!

When making this as part of a meal prep it counts for 4 servings. Each of those servings consists of 2 1/2 green containers, 1/2 of a red container, 1/5 of a blue container, 1/4 of an orange container and 1 1/4 tsp.
I recommend substituting the honey for agave instead.

Reset Your Body and Mind

I started eating healthy and creating a regular fitness routine a few years before I launched the blog. Post motherhood I realized I wasn’t taking care of myself the way I used to, and it lead me to seek some supplemental help. I recently discovered Q Sciences and it COMPLETELY transformed my unbalanced body and emotions. The products have helped me take control of my mental and physical health again. I now have a calling to bring this to other people who may feel somewhat lost in their own body. Want to talk with me about getting started? Reach out to me here and let’s get you signed up!
