Protein-Packed Quinoa Bowl
The sesame ginger dressing is a great choice for the tofu, especially for those who aren't fond of tofu (formerly myself.) Also don't forget to dry-fry to avoid that mushy/slimy texture!
4-8 oz extra firm tofu
1/2 - 1 cup quinoa
Snap peas (I sub'd edamame left over from the Kale salad)
Grape tomatoes (halved)
Scallions (finely sliced)
Sesame ginger dressing
After dry frying tofu place in a ziploc bag with sesame ginger dressing and sesame oil (the proportions are 2 to 1 - the tofu should be completely covered without any remaining glaze.)
Follow quinoa instructions on the box. 1 cup quinoa and 2 cups water will make two servings of this recipe.
Top quinoa with vegetables, sunflower seeds and tofu.
Drizzle a bit more sesame ginger dressing and sesame oil on the finished product. (This is optional. I forgot to bring extra dressing the second day and it was just as good!)
