Pepper Steak Style Tofu, Quinoa and Stuffed Tomato

This dish was full of flavors!  After a leg workout with weights, abs and then a 20mins hatha yoga, I needed to nurture my body correctly. When lifting, carbs are the best source of energy for those muscles to recover so I choose ttoeat quinoa because it has a good amount of carbohydrates but also fiber, protein and fat. I ate quinoa (cooked with paprika and sea salt), tofu seasoned with garlic and parsley and cooked with spinach, orange pepper and onion. I also had a tomato stuffed with a little bit of quinoa.

All the vegetables cooked with the tofu adds more flavor to it.


1 serving

1/2 cup dry quinoa

1 cup water

1/8 tsp paprika

A pinch of sea salt

3oz tofu (seasoned with a pinch of garlic and 1/4tsp parsley)

chopped onion

2 small orange peppers

2 handfuls of spring mix

1 tomato

1- In a pot stir the quinoa with the water and spices.

For the tofu:

1- Seasoned the tofu with the spices.

2- Pre-heat a pan on medium heat sprayed with coconut oil.
