I cut the recipe in half and made for my mother and I. It was delicious and very filling!
Quinoa & Smoked Tofu Salad
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.

This was very good - even my kids ate it all up. Very generous portion for such a low amount of calories and fat. Served it for dinner with a beet salad and bread, but it would really be good for a light but filling lunch. I cooked the quinoa an hour ahead of time and let it cool in the pot - spreading it on a baking sheet to cool sounded like a needless mess. Also used dried mint instead of fresh, but otherwise ollowed the recipe exactly.
I love this recipe for lunch on a work day, not only is it delicious I find it extremely energizing. The bright flavors in the dressing and herbs are a great pick me up, and the quinoa/tofu combo keeps me full for hours. I've been serving it over spinach to add volume. Great flavor combo!
I have always made my toboullah with quina instead of bulgar wheat, it taste much better. Tofu is an added bonus. Good for those on Gluten Free diets.
