Delicious and loaded with flavor. Quinoa is so versatile to cook. Smoked tofu you can find in Asian grocery store, which does add some smoky flavour and meaty texture. Definitely a keeper!

I love this Quinoa and Smoked Tofu Salad so much. Bought 1 package smoked tofu a couple of weeks ago, then found this recipe. I added some basil instead of mint, and I bought some purple bell pepper last Saturday, so I used purple ones instead. Awesome recipe. Has already saved to my recipe box!
