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

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.
