Cheesy tofu with couscous and tuna

Cheesy tofu with couscous and tuna

Enjoy this delicious tofu with baked cheese along with perfectly flavored couscous and tuna. Perfect lunch or dinner high in protein, vitamins, and minerals, prepared in half an hour. I present you another nutritious food low in fat and calories, which fits into the diet of really anyone - it does not contain eggs or nuts and you can prepare a meatless version by simply omitting tuna.

Tasty toasted tofu is an absolute delicacy - those who like it will agree with me. Personally, I like the smoked version the most, and I recommend you try it as well, as it has a delicate, nutty taste. Together with mozzarella, it is soft, juicy, and full of flavor. Preparing couscous may seem easy, but preparing truly delicious couscous may require a little concentration. Season the couscous with these spices and you will see for yourself what a great taste such an unusual mixture of spices can whip up.

This healthy dish is great for lunch or even dinner, and if you are not a vegetarian, you can add tuna in juice. Garnish the cheesy tofu with couscous and tuna with leafy vegetables and serve warm.
