  • In a medium pot, add the quinoa to 3 cups of low-boiling water (add a pinch of salt). Put lid on top. Cook until liquid is gone and quinoa is fluffy. This usually takes about 15-20 minutes to cook. Remove from heat and fluff with fork. Set aside to cool. (You can spread it out on a tray to cool faster)
  • In a small-medium bowl, whisk all the dressing ingredients together. Adjust flavors as needed. It might taste a little tangy or salty, but it will be spread over a lot of quinoa and veggies, so keep that in mind. Set aside.
  • Lightly sprinkle the crumbled tofu with salt, and pour 1-2 tablespoons of dressing on top. Gently work it in with your fingers to coat. If you'd like a tangier flavor, add a small amount of lemon juice (I do this). Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add the cooled quinoa, onion, cucumber, olives, roasted pepper and basil. Pour the dressing over everything and gently toss to combine. Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed. Top with the tofu crumbles when you're ready to serve.
