Vegetarian Recipe For Spicy Tofu and Veggies Over Quinoa

Spicy Tofu and Veggies Over Quinoa

This is a dish I've made several different ways, depending on the veggies and type of rice I have on hand. The sauce always has the three main elements — red chili paste, soy sauce, and sesame oil — but the measurements aren't exact, it depends on what you like. This was the first time I put the tofu/vegetables over quinoa (ran out of Calrose rice), and I have to say the grain paired nicely with the spicy dish. Thanks to some of the prepackaged elements, can't-screw-it-up tofu, and rice-cooker-made quinoa, this recipe is about as uncomplicated as it gets.

Here's the recipe!

  2. Soy sauce to taste
  3. 2-3 heaping spoonfuls chili garlic sauce
  4. 1 onion
  5. 1 package whole white mushrooms
  6. 1 package pre-cut red, yellow, and green bell peppers (or 2-3 whole bell peppers)
  7. 1 package extra firm tofu
  8. 1 cup quinoa

Directions

  1. Add quinoa and 2 cups water to rice cooker and start.
  2. Cut up bell peppers, mushrooms, onion, and tofu into 1-inch pieces and set aside.
  3. Pour sesame oil, soy sauce, and chili sauce into large pan or wok on medium-high. Add tofu and vegetables and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 or so minutes.
  4. Once the onions are translucent and the veggies are cooked without being too soft, serve on top of the quinoa.

Serves 4.
