Tofu. I feel like people can have one of two reactions to that word. There’s either a scrunched up nose and “uh no thank you” or there’s an enthusiastic “I love tofu!” I happen to be in the latter of those two and I’m certain that people who are in the other group just haven’t had good tofu. Truth.
One of my favorite quick dinners is tossing cubed firm tofu in a homemade teriyaki sauce or BBQ sauce, and roasted until crispy yet chewy. I seriously crave that stuff. Yeah – I crave tofu. So when I got the chance to try some Mori-Nu Tofu I was beyond excited for three main reasons. One: because I just gosh darn love the stuff. Two: because of Mori-Nu’s awesome packaging, their tofu requires absolutely no refrigeration. Genius. Three: You don’t have to press or drain the liquid out of it before cooking with it. For tofu lovers out there – you know how great that is.
Oh and did I mention reasons four, five, and six which are that it is made of non-GMO soy with no preservatives, is certified gluten-free, and they have two organic varieties. Yes, yes, and yes.
Okay, so enough about the awesome Mori-Nu Tofu – let’s talk about these bowls of pure yumminess, shall we? So we’ve got a base of quinoa. To that I added some roasted butternut squash, black beans, and jalapenos. And some spices for that flavah.
After tossing that all up I threw on some cilantro, more jalapenos, and then drizzled it with a chipotle sauce made with – you guessed it – TOFU! While the butternut squash and black bean quinoa mixture is super tasty on it’s own, the chipotle sauce totally makes this meal. It’s smoky chipotle flavor with the cumin and chili powder of the quinoa mixture is spot on. Plus, any super creamy sauce is a-okay in my book, and instead of being filled with cheese and cream, it’s tofu!
