I know summer has already packed its bags and autumn is settling in the air, maybe many of you in search of autumn recipes, but let me assure you, that you still can fit this awesome salad in your diet. 

This salad is packed with iron, minerals, protein and abundance of vitamin C which you'll need for your immune system, especially in winter when it's needed this most. 

So if you are thinking for the next summer to try out this recipe, let me remind you that you will big loser :)




Herby tofu kebab and orange salad, recipe I partly conjured up while I was watching Jamie Oliver's cookery programme Jamie's Everyday Super food  last week. 

Jamie was making this salad non-veg, but I immediately thought about replacing with tofu and told myself my next trip to supermarket will be so soon :) 

I like Jamie's recipes, actually, I've seen his debut cookery show The Naked Chef, a young boy came and talking about food, so surprising it was.
