Smoked Tofu & Sweet Potato Summer Salad

A light, summery salad that’s protein-packed with smoked tofu, as well as roasted sweet potato and salad vegetables.

When summer rolls around, sometimes there’s nothing better for lunch than a salad.

I don’t mean the traditional interpretation of salad though, with just green leaves and nothing else.

This salad has delicious, crispy smoked tofu and smokey-roasted sweet potato, topped with a tangy apple cider vinegar dressing.

This salad is going to leave you feeling satisfied and full, without feeling uncomfortable.

I love to crisp up my tofu for a warm aspect to the salad, but you could easily make this in advance to take to work with you and eat it cold – the choice is yours!

Total Time: 35 minutes

A light and summery protein-packed salad with smoked tofu, roasted sweet potato, and a tangy apple cider vinegar dressing.



  • 200g smoked tofu
  • 150g sweet potato
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1/2 red onion
  • salad leaves
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin


  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • Handful chopped coriander
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • salt & pepper


  1. Chop your sweet potato into bite-size chunks and season with paprika and cumin and a drizzle of olive oil. Roast for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, chop your tofu into bite-size chunks and heat a pan with a little oil. Add your tofu and cook until crispy on the outside.
  3. Slice your red onion and cucumber finely, and chop your tomato finely. Mix these with your salad vegetables.
  4. To make the dressing, simply combine all the ingredients and stir well. You may want to add a sweetener such as a little maple syrup if the dressing is too tangy for you.
  5. Top the salad with your tofu and sweet potato chunks.
