Quinoa Stir-Fry

The original recipe is from T.O.F.U.


  • 1 – 1 ½ cups of broccoli flowers and stems, cut
  • ½ package of tofu, cut into cubes
  • 1 small onion, cut
  • ¾ cup quinoa
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp safflower or canola oil (or another vegetable oil that can be used on high heat)
  • A pinch or two of coriander
  • A pinch or two of basil
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • Any other vegetables you want. 
  1. Chop the vegetables, tofu, and garlic.
  2. Rinse the quinoa and place in a small saucepan on medium heat with the water.
  3. When the water begins to boil slightly, reduce heat to low.
  4. In a frying pan or wok, heat up the oil (both oils at the same time).
  5. Once it is hot, add the garlic and onion.
  6. Fry for a few minutes, stirring frequently.
  7. Add the broccoli, tofu, coriander, basil, and soy sauce.
  8. Stir and cover with a lid.
  9. Keep stirring every few minutes until the broccoli is just about tender (approximately 10 minutes).
  10. If there is not enough liquid to steam the broccoli, add a bit more oil.
  11. Once the quinoa is cooked, add the quinoa to the stir fry.
  12. Add more soy sauce if you wish.
  13. Stir in for a minute or two.
