Ginger Miso Quinoa Bowl

I recently ate at The Plant cafe and had their delicious Quinoa Bowl.  I tried to recreate it and it turned out better than I expected.  I made a double recipe of the sauce and kept it in the fridge for future use.  I highly recommend trying Hodo Soy's firm tofu.  It's local, organic, gluten-free, non-gmo...and really the best tasting tofu I've ever tried. Anyway, this is a really great vegan, healthy meal so enjoy!

2 cups uncooked organic quinoa
1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil (or 1 Tablespoon EVOO and 1 Tablespoon toasted sesame seeds)
2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh organic ginger
2 cloves organic garlic, minced
1½ cups organic vegetable stock
½ cup organic white miso (look in the refrigerated section)
2 Tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 Tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
2 Tablespoons agave nectar (or sugar)
1 cup each of: organic broccoli, asparagus, or other veggies
1 cup organic mushrooms (brown, shiitake, etc.)
1 cup organic firm tofu, cubed
A few fresh organic cilantro leaves for garnish

Cook quinoa according to package instructions (my favorite way is in the rice cooker).  Combine oil, garlic and ginger in a saucepan over medium heat and saute for 2 minutes.  Add stock through nectar and bring to a boil, then simmer for 2 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Pour about 1/4-1/2 of the sauce into a pan and add tofu and mushrooms.  Saute for about 5 minutes, until mushrooms are tender.  Meanwhile, steam veggies.  Place quinoa into bowls (or large serving platter) and top with veggies and tofu mixture, then pour remaining sauce over everything.  Serve immediately.


  1. I'm traveling just now but will definitely mark this for the future. Although I don't eat meat, my husband and two of my kids do but a dish like this would suit everyone.

  2. Thank you! That is my favorite dish at The Plant!

  3. forgot to say when you add white miso!

  4. I added the miso to the sauce and mixed it in right before I added the mushrooms and tofu- it turned out great! I also added the tamari at the very end on top of everything
