Sometimes shortcut ingredients can be lifesavers. Or, at least dinnersavers.
I had a pack of White Wave Garlic and Herb Baked Tofu in the fridge. It's not something I normally buy, but decided to give it a try after finding it on sale.
With a giant head of red-leaf lettuce in the crisper, the tofu made a nice addition to a salad, providing flavor, texture and protein.
After adding a few sliced olives, dried cranberries and toasted almonds, dinner was prepared in under 10 minutes.
