Avobar's Superfood Salad Recipe

Superfood Salad Recipe


For The Salad
½ avocado
25g kale
50g baby spinach
75g quinoa (cooked)
50g beetroot (grated)
50g red cabbage (shredded)
25g carrot (grated)
25g pickled cucumber (sliced)
Pea shoots
50g tofu (crumbled)
5g za’atar
Toasted sesame seeds or flax seeds
25g Omega mix

For The Parsley Drizzle
25g parsley
25g lime juice
50ml extra virgin olive oil
Maldon sea salt
1 sprig fresh thyme
5g mustard
5g agave syrup
1g black pepper powder
2g garlic


  • In a mixing bowl, add the kale, baby spinach, quinoa, beetroot, red cabbage, carrot, pickled cucumber, pea shoots, half of the tofu and half of the Omega mix.
  • Combine the ingredients for the parsley drizzle in a separate bowl, then combine well with salad mix. Transfer the lot into a serving bowl.
  • Coat the sliced side of the avocado half with za’atar and toasted sesame seeds (or flax seeds), then pour the remaining dressing into where the seed of the avocado was.
  • Top the salad with the remaining tofu, Omega mix and dressed avocado half.

Sassy Tip: If you’re missing a few ingredients for the salad or aren’t a fan of a particular ingredient, they can easily be left out or swapped for something else. For added protein, Chef Tushar recommends pairing this superfood salad with salmon.
