Tomato Carpaccio with Tofu

This plant-based version of the Italian-inspired salad is super succulent with plenty of fat from olive oil. 

The tofu provides most of the protein along with choline, folate, copper, manganese and phosphorus.  A dollop of tahini brings a Mediterranean twist along with copper, phosphorus, calcium and iron.   The spinach adds folate, potassium and vitamin K1 while the tomato boosts vitamins A and C.
