Quinoa garden salad with smoked tofu

by Tessa Moorman

Huh?!? Smoked tofu?

Have you ever eaten smoked tofu? You can get it at organic supermarkets like Ekoplaza and Marqt, for example. It is a delicious seasoning in a salad or on a sandwich. You don’t have to prepare it and it has a firm bite. You can use smoked tofu in dishes where you would otherwise use smoked salmon, mackerel, goat cheese or feta as a salty tastemaker.

This garden salad contains quinoa. Instead of quinoa you can also use (black, red or brown rice). Want to be ready extra fast? Then use couscous!
