Created by the Purple Carrot

8 oz sweet potato, diced

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp + 2 tsp toasted sesame oil

6 oz shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and thinly sliced

7 oz Nasoya Baked Teriyaki Tofu, cut into 1 inch cubes

6 oz shredded red cabbage

2 oz leafy lettuce, torn

1 lime, halved

1 oz fresh cilantro leaves and/or mint leaves

1 orange, peeled and cut into wedges

1 jalapeño, thinly sliced

8 oz sweet potato, diced

¼ cup raw, unsalted almonds pieces

¼ cup peanut sauce

Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F. Toss diced sweet potatoes with 1 tbsp olive oil and roast in over until brown and crispy, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Place a large nonstick skillet over high heat with 2 tsp sesame oil. Once hot, add the sliced mushrooms and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Cook, tossing occasionally, until browned in places and crispy, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer the cooked shiitake mushrooms to a plate and return skillet to medium-high heat with 1 tsp sesame oil. Add cubed tofu to the skillet, sprinkle with salt, and cook until crispy on most sides, 4 to 6 minutes.
  4. Add the shredded red cabbage and leaf lettuce to a large bowl with juice from the lime and remaining 2 tsp sesame oil. Add the herb leaves, orange wedges, sliced jalapeño, roasted sweet potato, and almonds. Season salad with salt and pepper and toss.

    Cornstarch holds the key to crispiness! Tossing tofu in cornstarch and giving it a light coating helps it take on a truly crispy crust when pan-searing or frying.
