Add some tofu and pesto to your regular caprese salad.

Fact: Vegetarian food can be every bit as protein-packed as its omnivorous kin. Veggie and the Beast bloggers Katie Parker and Kristen Smith’s loaded new cookbook is an ode to vegetarian food with rib-sticking heartiness, and this spin on the traditional caprese salad is no exception. Ready for lunch?  

This salad is not only easy to make but also packed with protein, nutrients, and Italian flavors. Bites of fresh mozzarella are mixed with sweet cherry tomatoes, baby kale, tofu crispy enough to be mistaken for croutons, and a flavorful basil pesto dressing.
