Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup quinoa
  2. 1 teaspoon olive oil
  3. 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  4. 1 small broccoli crown, broken into florets
  5. 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  6. 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  7. 1 tablespoon water
  8. 1 teaspoon tamari (or soy sauce)
  9. 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar or coconut sugar

  11. Salt and pepper to taste
  12. 4 slices baked tofu
  13. 2 tablespoons chopped roasted peanuts
Instructions
  1. Cook the quinoa in water or vegetable broth according to package directions. While the quinoa is cooking, heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the red pepper and cook for about 3 minutes, until softened. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the broccoli to the skillet with 2 tablespoons of water. Cover and steam for about 2 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender. Transfer the broccoli to the bowl with the pepper.
  2. Whisk the peanut butter, lime juice, water, tamari, sugar, and ginger in a small bowl. When the quinoa is done, transfer it to the bowl with the veggies and toss everything with the peanut sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Ingredients
  1. 3 tablespoons tamari (or soy sauce)
  2. 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  3. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  4. 1 clove garlic, minced
  5. A pinch or two of freshly ground pepper
  6. 1 (15-ounce) package extra-firm tofu, drained, pressed for 30 minutes, and cut into 8 slices (use a tofu pressfor best results)
Instructions
  1. Whisk together the tamari, maple syrup, olive oil, garlic, and pepper in a small baking dish. Place the tofu in the dish and let it marinate for about 30 minutes, flipping the tofu over after about 15 minutes. The tofu should soak up almost all of the marinade.
  2. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Spray a baking sheet with oil or cooking spray or line it with parchment paper; place the tofu on the baking sheet and bake for about 40 minutes, or until edges are dark and tofu is chewy, turning tofu over halfway through cooking time.
