We made this last night right before one of our hardest workouts of the week and it was awesome!!! It was easy to make, it tasted great, it did not weigh us down and we had plenty of energy for our workout. The best part is we just felt really good after eating this meal! Not sure who Heather is, but we found this on 101 cookbooks and tweaked it to our liking.
stuff you will need:
1 shallot (minced)
3 cups cooked quinoa
1 cup corn (frozen)
1 1/2 cups spinach
2 cups extra-firm tofu
1/3 cup pesto (see pesto recipe)
1/3 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup roasted cherry tomatoes (halved)
what to do with the stuff:
-Make the quinoa as per the cooking instructions (you know from the box :)
-In small skillet toast seeds over medium heat; set aside.
-In a large skillet brown the tofu with a little olive oil, you can do the tomatoes at the same time; set aside
-In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
-Stir in the shallot and cook for a minute or two.
-Stir in the quinoa and corn and cook until hot and sizzling.
-Stir in the spinach and then the tofu, cooking until tofu is heated through.
-Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the pesto and pumpkin seeds.
-Mix well so the pesto is spread throughout.
-Turn everything out onto a platter and top with the cherry tomatoes.
