Quinoa & Smoked Tofu Salad

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/quinoa_smoked_tofu_salad.html

From EatingWell:  July/August 2007, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

We took the tangy fresh flavors of tabbouleh and paired them with smoky tofu and quinoa to create a main-dish salad that's perfect served on a bed of greens. This salad is jam-packed with heart-healthy ingredients—whole grains (quinoa), legumes (soy-based tofu) and plenty of vegetables.

6 servings, about 1 1/3 cups each | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Bring water and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add quinoa and return to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until the water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Spread the quinoa on a baking sheet to cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk lemon juice, oil, garlic, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the cooled quinoa, tofu, bell pepper, tomatoes, cucumber, parsley and mint; toss well to combine.
