Miso-Garlic-Roasted Tofu Caesar Salad

In this hearty version of the classic romaine salad, miso does double duty as a marinade for the roasted tofu and a rich, savory layer in the dressing. There are several varieties of miso available, but the mellow, subtle sweetness of brown rice miso is just unobtrusive enough to blend into the lemony dressing while letting the flavors of the olive oil come through, and just rich enough to add character to otherwise plain-Jane tofu.

so good!

I am not even kidding when I tell you I make this salad weekly. I really really love it! I omit the cheese and radicchio, but it is still AMAZING!

Very savory and easy to make.

My daughters loved this when I made it for them a couple of nights ago. I didn't have any of the prepared salad but I tried the tofu when it came out of the oven and it was delicious and savory. They both want me to make it again soon. This was very easy to make. One note, this is NOT vegetarian if you use parmesan cheese which by law must be made with animal rennet to be labeled Italian Parmesan. It's easy to omit for the strictly vegetarian (like my younger daughter).
