Meatless Monday: Pan Seared Tofu with Apples & Champagne Vinaigrette

pan seared tofuThis dish was super light but the flavors of fall were in full effect! With crisp apples & pomegranetes at their peak I had to create this recipe when I found it!

To throw this together…

  1. In a small jar whisk together 3T champagne vinegar, 2T EVOO, 1 minced shallot, 4 sprigs of fresh thyme & 1/2t salt – adjust seasoning if needed & set aside  (I love champagne vinegar so I used less EVOO than called for)
  2. Press 1 block of tofu (click here for instructions) – let sit for 15minutes then slice into cubes
  3. Place a large skillet over high heat & add 2T oil (I used avocado oil)
  4. Once heated place tofu cubes in pan & sear on either side til golden brown – place on paper towels once golden & set aside
  5. Slice up 2 crisp red apples & seed 1 pomegranate (seeding instructions here)  – add to bowl & toss with vinaigrette

I added my tofu at the end because I didn’t want it to crumble – but do as you please! Hope you enjoy this tasty fall dish 😉
