Feel free to vary the vegetables according to the season in this Super Vegetable Salad. Don’t like tofu? Just sub in the protein of your choice.
Preheat oven to 400°. In small roasting pan, roast cherry tomatoes 10 minutes.
In saucepan, steam broccoli, beans, and carrots over 1 inch boiling water (15 minutes, or until tender).

In shallow bowl, combine cornmeal and herbs. In large skillet, heat remaining 1 TBSP oil. Dip tofu in cornmeal and sauté until golden.
