Delicious Broccoli and Tofu Curry Pasta Salad

if you like salads that taste like a five star restaurant made them, then you came to the right place.

Delicious Broccoli and Tofu Curry Pasta Salad is probably the best salad i have made to date, and we can thank the dressing for that.

wow, where do i begin? how about we start with the crunchy roasted broccoli and amazing tofu.

you can roast the broccoli and tofu on the same baking pan at 400 degrees for about 22-25 minutes.

i like a nice crisp on the broccoli and for the tofu to be golden brown.

then, i toast some cashews in the oven until they also golden brown.

you can replace the cashews with another type of nut or seed, but cashews compliment the dressing flavors the best.

pasta is a huge component of this recipe as this is a pasta salad after all!

the pasta will give the salad substance and make this feel more like a meal as opposed to a side dish.

i recommend using a protein pasta for a more filling dish, but any will work here!

between the tofu and a protein pasta, Delicious Broccoli and Tofu Curry Pasta Salad will have you feeling plenty satisfied.

medjool dates are a must in Delicious Broccoli and Tofu Curry Pasta Salad by the way!

if you just don’t like dates or don’t have any on hand, raisins would be a good replacement.

the sweetness of the dates is the ultimate compliment to the otherwise very savory flavors.

ah, and the dressing, the best part by FAR. oh my goodness, this is the best y’all.

here’s the secret to a creamy and dreamy dressing texture- half dairy free yogurt and half vegan mayo!

i used kite hill plain and unsweetened yogurt and chosen foods vegan mayo.

you will need 1/3 cup of each along with some vegetable broth to thin it out.

the main flavor here is curry, and this recipe calls for 1 tbsp!

also, you’re going to need some minced garlic and then liquid aminos for the salty component.

i do add 1 tsp only of maple syrup, which is very important in balancing out the flavors.

if you don’t want to use maple syrup, coconut nectar would be a good alternative.
