2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and roast the tofu

Heat the oven to 425°F.

  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or grease with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil.
  • Pat the tofu dry with paper towels and crumble it into 1-inch pieces.

In a medium bowl, toss the tofu with the chipotle BBQ sauce base and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Spread the tofu in an even layer on the prepared sheet pan and roast, stirring halfway through, until the tofu is firm and the edges are lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, start preparing the rest of the meal. 


Prep the vegetables

  • Trim the root end from the romaine heart; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Rinse the black beans.
  • Peel the cucumber if desired; cut the cucumber into ½-inch pieces.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half; cut any large tomatoes into quarters.


Toast the pumpkin seeds; make the vinaigrette

In a dry small frying pan over medium heat, add the pumpkin seeds and toast, stirring often, until golden brown and starting to pop, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl, drizzle with the tamari, and toss to coat; let cool.

In another small bowl, stir together the honey-mustard vinaigrette base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the romaine to individual bowls. Top with the beans, cucumber, tomatoes, cheddar, and BBQ tofu. Sprinkle with the pumpkin seeds, drizzle with the honey-mustard vinaigrette, and serve.
