Red Quinoa and Bulgur Stir Fry

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups of red quinoa and bulgur (I used a package of Central Market Bulgur and Red Quinoa Quick Cook Grains)
  • 1 package of firm tofu
  • 2 small heads or 1 large head of broccoli
  • 4-6 carrots (adjust depending on your preference)
  • 1-2 TBSP of olive oil
  • 2 TBPS of liquid aminos

Directions:

  1. Drain tofu. Place tofu on two paper towels sitting on top of a cutting board and set a heavy plate on top of tofu to press out additional liquid. Let sit for 15 minutes.
  2. Start cooking quinoa and bulgur according to package directions.
  3. Wash and chop broccoli and carrots.
  4. Cut tofu into small cubes.
  5. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  6. Add liquid aminos and tofu to the skillet.
  7. Increase the heat to slightly higher than medium and cook tofu until lightly browned. Make sure to stir often to prevent burning and to ensure that all sides of tofu brown.
  8. Remove tofu from skillet. Add a little more olive oil and liquid aminos if needed. Add broccoli and carrots to the skillet and cook for 5-10 minutes until slightly softened but still crunchy.
  9. Add vegetables and tofu to quinoa and bulgur and mix together.
  10. Enjoy!
