Ingredients

  • 35g dry quinoa
  • 140g firm tofu
  • 1 tsp rose harissa paste (belazu)
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 5 smokey tomatoes (30g – you can also use sundried)
  • 1 small handful parsley, chopped
  • 60g lambs lettuce
  • 30g pomegranate
  • 1/4 chilli, thinly sliced

Method

  1. Cook quinoa according to packet instructions
  2. In the meantime, cut the tofu into chunks and toss in the harissa paste, garlic and half of the lemon juice
  3. Over a medium heat, add the tofu to the pan and shake occasionally for about 10 minutes, making sure it doesn’t burn (optional, you can fry for 5 minutes then transfer to a baking tray and bake for 10 instead – I prefer this method as I love baked tofu)
  4. Once quinoa has cooked, stir in the remaining lemon juice, smokey tomatoes and parsley
  5. Place the lambs lettuce on a plate, then top with the quinoa and tofu chunks. Sprinkle over some pomegranate seeds and chilli and enjoy!
