A vegan salad with roast vegetables is a healthy and filling salad that’s packed with flavour. Colourful roasted vegetables and high protein tofu are brought together with a flavourful peanut dressing. We’ve used red pepper, cauliflower, courgette and sweet potatoes in our vegan salad, but you could use other vegetables such as broccoli or squash. This healthy and satisfying meal tastes so good that the whole family will love it.
