Vegan Kale Caesar Salad with Tofu Croutons
To prepare tofu croutons: Arrange tofu on a baking sheet between layers of paper towels. Top with another pan, place a heavy can on top and let drain for 15 minutes. Whisk lemon juice, Worcestershire, garlic powder and onion powder in a large bowl. Add the tofu and toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes or refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Transfer the tofu to a plate, discarding liquid.Advertisement
Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Cook half the tofu until golden and crisp on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain and cool. Repeat with the remaining oil and tofu.
To prepare salad: Toss kale and nutritional yeast in a large bowl. Divide among 4 lidded single-serving containers. Top each with 1/2 cup of the croutons and 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds. Divide dressing among 4 small lidded containers or jars.
Seal the containers and refrigerate for up to 4 days. Toss each salad with the dressing and top with 1/4 avocado (sliced) just before serving.
To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 4 days.
