Wash produce before use
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. Meanwhile, pickle the radishes and carrots.
Make the quick-pickled radishes and carrots
- Thinly slice the radishes.
In a medium bowl, combine the radishes, carrots, and quick-pickle brine. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.
Prep and cook the tofu
- Pat the tofu dry with paper towels and cut it crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil 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, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Meanwhile, finish the quinoa.
Prep the cilantro; finish the quinoa
- Coarsely chop the cilantro.
To the pot with the quinoa, stir in the cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the quinoa to individual bowls. Using a slotted spoon, remove the pickled vegetables from the brine. Top the quinoa with the vegetables, tofu, and cabbage. Drizzle with the cashew-lime dressing and serve.
