Here in Switzerland the weather is getting warmer and it’s starting to feel more and more like summer is around the corner.

Mediterranean Tofu Quinoa
Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe. It’s been a while since I’ve even cooked a meal if I’m honest! I’ve been so busy lately, and even when I’ve been home and had a chance to cook, more often than not I’ve just thrown together a big salad or whipped out some rice cakes and the peanut butter jar (they’re best friends).
This was quite a departure from my usual quinoa cooking, which 99.9% of the time is this turmeric & ginger flavored one, but I can assure you I will definitely be making this again and again. Bursting with flavor, nutrition and also light and refreshing, this dish is perfect for a relaxed summer evening. I can already see myself making this for my family back home for a (fingers crossed) late summer BBQ on the terrace.Continue reading “Mediterranean Tofu Quinoa”
