A stir-fry quinoa bowl brimming with fresh veggies and tofu is a healthy replacement for the days you just can't kick the craving for takeout.

How to Make It

Step 1

Arrange tofu on several layers of heavy-duty paper towels. Cover with additional paper towels; let stand 15 minutes. Cut into 1/2-inch-thick cubes.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add tofu; sauté 4 minutes or until browned. Place tofu in a bowl. Return pan to medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Add onions and next 4 ingre­dients (through bell pepper); stir-fry 4 minutes or just until tender. Add 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon vinegar, and salt; cook 30 seconds. Add mushroom mixture to tofu.

Step 3

Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar, quinoa, cabbage, cilantro, and sugar. Toss well to combine.
