Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the quinoa

  • Rinse the quinoa.
In a small sauce pot, combine the quinoa and 1 cup [2 cups] lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm.
While the quinoa cooks, prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Trim the root ends from the baby broccoli; cut any larger stalks in half lengthwise.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; cut the scallions crosswise into 1-inch lengths.
  • Remove the stems from the shishito peppers, if desired, and cut the peppers in half lengthwise. Wash your hands after handling.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons [3 to 4 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the broccoli and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the scallions and peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to soften and the broccoli is crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Wipe out the pan.
While the vegetables cook, prepare the tofu.

3

Prep and cook the tofu

  • Cut the tofu crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices.
In the same pan used for the vegetables, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, arrange the tofu in a single layer, season with salt and pepper, and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the tofu cooks, prepare the cilantro and the dressing.

4

Prep the cilantro; make the hoisin dressing

  • Zest and juice the lime.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro for garnish.
In a small bowl, stir together the hoisin, lime zest and juice, and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the quinoa to individual bowls and top with the vegetables and tofu. Spoon on as much hoisin dressing as you like and garnish with the cilantro. Serve any remaining dressing on the side.
