Make the Quinoa

  • Rinse the quinoa in a fine sieve and add it to a small pot with 1 1/2 cups of water and a pinch of salt. Bring to boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to simmer.
  • Cook the quinoa until tender and the water is absorbed, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

Cook the Tofu

  • Mince the garlic and ginger.
  • Combine the lemon vinaigrette, nutritional yeast, garlic and ginger, and 1/4 cup olive oil in a food processor/blender. Puree until smooth.
  • Cut the tofu into 1/2-inch cubes and add them to a large bowl. Drizzle with 1/4 of the lemon vinaigrette mixture, tossing lightly to coat.
  • Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat and add the marinated tofu.
  • Cook for 5-7 minutes, flipping halfway through, until slightly crispy.

Prepare the Veggies

  • Rinse and pat dry the beets, carrots, bell pepper, and cucumber.
  • Shred the beet and carrot with a grater.
  • Thinly slice the cucumber and bell pepper.

Bring it All Together

  • Evenly divide the quinoa between the two bowls.
  • Top with the tofu and veggies.
  • Drizzle with the remaining lemon vinaigrette mixture and top with sunflower seeds to serve!
