Vegan Cobb Salad – where does the name come from?
The first version of the Cobb salad was created in Los Angeles in 1926. There, a certain Mr. Cobb used leftovers to make salad and it was named after him: Cobb Salad. Of course you can just use leftovers with this vegan Cobb salad. I still had carrots, tomatoes, coconut bacon and tofu left. And conjured up this delicious vegan Cobb salad.
Vegan Cobb Salad Without Oil or Processed Foods
Clearly, it is controversial whether tofu is seen as highly processed or not. I do not think that if you look at how it is made, you could confidently make it at home. However, this would go beyond my time-frame. And with the right preparation, tofu tastes great, it’s neutral in taste like any other non-vegan source of protein: chicken and other meats. Only with the right spices, they get their taste and this is the same with tofu. So I like to use it in my vegan Cobb salad. But if you do not eat tofu for health reasons or you just do not like tofu, then just take a few small cauliflower florets and prepare them as you would prepare the tofu in the vegan Cobb salad recipe.
This vegan Cobb salad is:
- Full of vitamins and minerals
