Insalata Caprese with Tofu


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • ripe tomatoes
  • firm tofu
  • fresh chopped bazil/dried o.k.
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt or salt substitute
  • garlic powder
  • chopped green onions (optional)


This is my vegan version of the classic “Insalata Caprese”,
which is made with fresh mozzarella instead of tofu.
Cut whole tomatoes into approx. 1/4 to 1/2″ thick slices and
arrange on a plate (vine-ripened tomatoes are best because
of their natural sweetness). Pat tofu dry and cut into
approx. 1/8″ thick slices to fit on each tomato slice.
Sprinkle sparingly with salt; add garlic powder
and basil to taste. I like to add the green onions, since
tofu does not have much flavor. Drizzle some good quality
Extra Virgin Olive Oil over everything. Buon Appetito!

Preparation time: 10 min.
