Vegan Cobb Salad

  • ½ head of romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 4 strips tempeh bacon, homemade or store-bought
  • 4 oz. eggy tofu, recipe follows
  • ½ cup Poultry-Spiced Chickpeas
  • ½ cup cherry tomato, halved

Eggy Tofu

Poultry-Spiced Chickpeas

  • ½ cup cooked chickpeas
  • ½ teaspoon poultry spice
  • pinch of salt


  • Start by making the eggy tofu. Heat a griddle over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon oil. Add tofu and sauté for 5-7 minutes, stirring often, until a light crust begins to form. Stir in the nutritional yeast and black salt. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In the same sauté pan, heat up the chickpeas. Add poultry seasoning and salt and stir to combine. Cook until heated thoroughly. Remove from heat.
  • Cut the tempeh bacon into ½" slices. Heat it up bacon according to package instructions. Set aside.
  • To assemble the salads, spread romaine lettuce evenly between two plates. Add the remaining ingredients in rows. Top with vegan ranch dressing and enjoy!


Serving and Storing - This salad should be eaten within several hours of assembling it. When you are ready to eat, toss it with the dressing and enjoy immediately
