Grilled Caesar salad with crispy protein croutons


A vegetarian recipe for warm summer evenings

It is the all-time classic par excellence: the Caesar Salad. The classic among salads often has a bad reputation when it comes to a healthy and balanced diet. We love the different taste components of the Caesar salad and especially its dressing, but since we like to forego oil and useless calories, we took on the challenge and put together a higher protein, lower calorie and vegetarian summer salad. The highlight: We put the romaine lettuce on the grill, here it absorbs a few toasted aromas before it ends up on your plate. Because who says there always has to be meat on the grill? And our Caesar Salad 2.0 supports the croutons from our protein bread. you with your muscle building.

Then replace the parmesan with yeast flakes and the quark with a vegetable quark alternative and you have a vegan salad with a bite. Do you want us to tell you another secret? Roast a few chickpeas and give them a nice, spicy coat and you have a crispy and protein-rich topping for your vegan Caesar salad. It will be the highlight of the next barbecue evening – we promise!
