quick, vegetarian, one-bowl

Ingredients:

  • Quinoa + Vegetables + Protein (tofu or tempeh) + Garnishes
  • Spicy Peanut Sauce (The Kitchn)

Cook the quinoa (about 15 minutes) and make the sauce. Steam the vegetables and protein: Use a single vegetable or a mix – whatever you like and have on hand – plus tofu (firm or extra-firm) or tempeh. Cut them into uniform sizes to ensure even cooking. Fill a saucepan with an inch or two of water and place the steamer basket or colander inside, and bring to a boil. Layer the vegetables and protein in the basket, placing heavier, dense items (root veg, tempeh) on the bottom and lighter items (leafy greens, tofu) on top. Cover the pan, reduce heat to medium, and steam until everything is just cooked.

Prepare the garnishes: Garnishes add a nice bit of color, texture, and flavor to the bowl. Try fresh herbs (cilantro, basil), nuts and seeds (peanuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds), dried fruit (raisins, currants, cranberries), or chopped scallions, onions, or sweet peppers.
