Carolyn's Quinoa

This is the first recipe i have made with tofu.  This is the second time i have made it.  Tonight was better than the first time, but i would still make a couple changes.  The quinoa, though a nice texture, is a little bland and should be cooked in veggie broth instead of water.  Secondly, i would add maybe 1/3 C feta to add a little more salt.  

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup corn, fresh or frozen
  • 1 1/2 cups spinach or other hearty green, finely chopped
  • 2 cups extra-firm tofu, browned in a skillet a bit
  • 1/3 cup spinach pesto (click for recipe)
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • S + P to taste
  1. In a big skillet or pot heat the olive oil and salt over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion and cook for a minute or two.
  2. Stir in the quinoa and corn and cook until hot and sizzling. Stir in the kale and then the tofu, cooking until tofu is heated through.
  3. Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the pesto and pumpkin seeds. Mix well so the pesto is spread throughout. Turn everything out onto a platter and top with the cherry tomatoes.
