QuinoKim :: Quinoa, Tofu, Black Olives, & Tomato Delight

Last night when Bry asked what we were having for dinner, I honestly had no clue. I told him, "Ill throw something together, babe". And I wasn't kidding. I decided to do something with Quinoa and Tofu and ended up throwing some random things in. When we tasted the creation at the dinner table last night, Bryan said "What is so creamy in this?" and we were both amazed at the flavor produced. So here we share with you and hope you enjoy as well.

  • quinoa
  • extra firm tofu
  • diced tomatoes
  • black olives

  1. boil 1 cup of quinoa in 1.5 cups of water in a pot
  2. while the quinoa is boiling saute tofu in strips in a pan with evoo
  3. add spices to tofu (i used cilantro, chives, and thyme)
  4. once the quinoa bloats you can remove it from heat (approx 20 mins)
