How to make it

  • Directions
  • Make tofu: Preheat oven to 400F. Place tofu slices in small glass baking dish. In small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients and 1/4 cup water. Pour over tofu. Bake until tofu is browned and marinade is absorbed, about 45 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, rinse quinoa in sieve under cold running water until water runs clear. In medium saucepan, combine quinoa, 2 cups water and pinch each of cayenne and salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, 15 minutes.
  • Transfer quinoa to large bowl and let cool. Crumble in 4 slices baked tofu. Add celery, diced bell pepper, cilantro, almonds and vinegar. Season with salt to taste and mix well.
  • Line serving platter with lettuce, spoon salad on top, and garnish with sesame seeds and pepper strips if desired. Serve with remaining baked tofu on the side.
