    I enjoyed this recipe. For next time, I'd suggest cooking the Quinoa as directed on the package and adding the tofu a few minutes before all the veggies.

    I wouldn't say that this recipe is worthy of a special occasion but I would still give it 4 stars. It's super easy, has great texture, color and variety. I don't think that this recipe would be as good with brown rice. I used red quinoa which worked well.

    This is a great light meal. We made with whole wheat bulgar b/c we didn't have any quinoa and I'm not sure it made a positive or negative effect. I would for sure add the tofu before the veggies so it takes on more of the flavoring or even soak it in the dressing for a little while. Served with fresh fruit salad - blueberries, stawberries, pineapple and kiwi slices. Very colorful! My one-year-old who doesn't eat meat went to town on the tofu. We will be making this again!

    I love this recipe for lunches. I find I need way more sauce or else I just use soy sauce.

    Great use of quinoa. I think it is better on quinoa than it would be on rice. I stir-fry the tofu first until golden. Very quick and tasty.

    The quinoa and nutty sesame oil are great. I would definitely toast the sesame seeds before sprinkling on top next time. I loved the tofu and mushrooms, but would swap out the asparagus and bell pepper for different veggies - maybe snow peas and bamboo shoots?

    This was delicious!! I stir fried the tofu for a bit before adding the vegetables, and I substituted broccoli for the mushrooms. This tastes great over quinoa! Wouldn't be nearly as good over rice. It was also super fast and easy. Will make again!

    Wow! This was so good I had to force myself to stop eating it.
