Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes

• 1 large onion, sliced

Advert

• 1 head of broccoli, cut into florets

• 2 cloves of garlic, sliced

• 200g/8oz firm tofu

Advert

• 200g/8oz black quinoa

• 1 tsp curry powder

• 1 tsp turmeric

Advert

• 1-2 tbsp soya sauce

• 2 tbsp coconut oil

1. Cook the quinoa in a pan with 400ml (14fl oz) water until the water has evaporated and the quinoa is al dente (about 15 minutes, or follow packet instructions). Set aside.

2. Meanwhile, pat the tofu dry with a paper towel, pressing on it to extract excess water. Cut into ½in dice.

4. In the same pan, add a little more coconut oil, then add the onion and garlic, fry for five minutes, then add the broccoli, curry powder and turmeric and cook for a further few minutes.

5. Take off the heat, then mix all the cooked ingredients together. Serve warm with extra soya sauce.
