Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free, this recipe for Tofu with Carrot and Chives is a great healthy dish for those with dietary restrictions. Cut into rectangles, the tofu is lightly browned on each side. The crowning glory of this dish is the carrot and chive chopped vegetable salad. Made with fresh garlic, onion, tomato, and, of course, carrots, this vegetable mixture is finely chopped and lightly cooked in wine and spices to release the flavors. Each piece of tofu should be served with a healthy spread of the carrot and chive salad.

I followed this recipe down to the cucumber salad and white rice. It is a perfect vegan dish that’s filling and good for you. I also serve the tofu and carrots on top of crisp rye crackers.
