Quinoa and Rice Salad with Baked Tofu and Sautéd Mushrooms

Quinoa is very popular at the moment. It doesn't taste like much on its own but you can add whatever you want to it, like rice. You need to rinse it very well before cooking it. If not, it will be very starchy.

In order to add flavour to the quinoa, we added oranges, pine nuts, tomatoes, cucumber, grated ginger and balsamic vinegar. We baked tofu marinated in ginger and soya sauce and served it with mushrooms sautéed with shallots and ginger.

This meal is very quick to make and very healthy. We have been trying different ways of preparing tofu and so far, ginger is our favourite. The next time we will try adding different flavours to the quinoa. Same base ingredients, different flavours.
