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

Wash produce before use


Cook the quinoa

  • Rinse the quinoa.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the maple vinaigrette base and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil.

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. Add the vinaigrette, fluff with a fork, and season to taste with salt and pepper; cover and keep warm.

While the quinoa is cooking, prepare the rest of the meal. 


Prep and cook the carrots and chickpeas

  • Scrub or peel the carrots and trim the ends; thinly slice the carrots on the diagonal. 
  • Rinse the chickpeas.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the carrots, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and starting to soften, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in the chickpeas and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. 

Transfer to a medium bowl, stir in the cilantro, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan.

While the carrots and chickpeas are cooking, prepare the tofu and cucumber. 


Prep the tofu and cucumber; cook the tofu

  • Pat the tofu dry with paper towels and cut it into 1-inch cubes. 
  • Peel the cucumber if desired; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then crosswise into enough half-moons to measure 1 cup [2 cups]. Set aside for serving.

In the same pan used for the carrots and chickpeas, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the tofu, season with salt and pepper, and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to another medium bowl, stir in the harissa, and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the quinoa to individual bowls. Top with the carrots and chickpeas, tofu, and cucumber and serve.
