Quinoa Stir-Fry

My friend Suzanne wanted this recipe, so here you go.

1/2 block of tofu
1/2 onion chopped
1 inch of ginger, peeled and diced
4 cloves garlic
Vegetables, any kind you want, I used lots of mushrooms, broccoli, and snowpeas
2 Tbsp Tamari (or "real" soy sauce, I stopped using regular no name brand since it contains virtually no trace of actual soybeans)
2 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp of Sambal Oelek or red chili paste, or some chili flakes. Use less if you don't want it too spicy.
1/4 cup water
1 cup Quinoa, rinsed. Or brown rice would be good too.

Cook Quinoa in 1 1/2 cups water like you would rice. (Bring water and Quinoa to a boil, then cover and simmer until all the water is absorbed and the Quinoa is soft.

In a frying pan, fry onions, ginger and garlic in sesame oil until soft. Crumble tofu and add. Add Tamari, sambal oelek, and 1/4 cup water and let it cook for 10 minutes on medium heat. Add your veggies, cover until they're cooked. Serve it over the Quinoa. It's very delicious and I think it's pretty healthy too.
