Vegan Cobb Salad!

Salads are healthy, right? If you’ve ever had a proper cobb salad, you know the answer to that question is false. Sure the lettuce is healthy but when you add in boat loads of cheese, bacon, ranch dressing, and hard boiled egg’s a lot!

Thankfully, I’ve found a way to enjoy all those unique flavors a cobb salad has to offer without as many calories and fat! If you’re planning to take this salad to work, you’ll have to meal prep the almond dijon dressing and coconut bacon ????, but after that, you’re home free!

I’m obsessed with vegan cobb salad. How obsessed you asked? I’m embarrassed to tell you I brought this salad for lunch at my day job for almost a month straight. Yowza!

Vegan cobb salad is real easy to make – I mean it’s a salad, so you pretty much throw the ingredients in a bowl and chow down. I do have a few tips to share while you make a tofu hard boiled egg though!

To make a vegan hard boiled egg, all you have to do is chop up some super firm tofu into small bite sized pieces and stir in a little kala namak black salt. Only catch is that once black salt gets wet, it emits a super stinky odor. Like real bad! The first time I made it at work, our office stunk for four hours. My boss wasn’t pleased!

To prepare tofu hard boiled eggs and not stink up your house, I recommend making the egg before you chop any other vegetables. As soon as you add the black salt, step outside, stir the salt into the tofu pieces to ensure even coverage, and leave it outside while you prep the rest of the salad. When the salad is ready, add the tofu on top and immediately top with dressing. At this point you should be able to bring it inside and eat it without offending anyone!

In addition to hard boiled tofu egg, vegan cobb salad is full of great ingredients like red onion, tomato, broccoli, avocado, and peas. It might just be me, but peas are the unsung hero of all salad bars. There’s something so delicious about peas on salads! I couldn’t tell why, but I’m a big fan over here!

So there you have it! Vegan cobb salad – complete with kale, coconut bacon, tofu hard boiled egg, tomato, avocado, peas, broccoli, red onion, and almond dijon dressing. Hell effing yes it’s vegan.
