Okay, here's another one I threw together last week, it was delicious and fed me for a couple days!
2 cups cooked (to al dente) and cooled whole grain pasta of your choice, you want a smaller roundish type shape like a corkscrew/rotini to hold the sauce and ingredients well
about 1/2-3/4 c cut into bite-sized pieces english cucumber (or another low moisture cucumber)
2 stalks celery cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 c corn
1/2 c garbanzo beans
2-3 pickled peppadew peppers
firm tofu (I only put in a little bit, maybe 2 oz but you can put in more if you like. Mine was also marinated but you can use plain)
a couple teaspoons canola oil - you can skip this if you are watching your oil intake
some juice from the pickled peppadews for the acid balance
salt/pepper to taste
It offers a lot of different textures and flavors and is pretty healthy and filling!
