Korean Style Quinoa

The first time I made Korean style meat was with ground beef and it was delicious. I wanted to try a vegetarian version of this and I liked it even better. 

I decided to make this for lunch one day and both kids and I loved this creation. The perfect balance of spice and sweet.

This is a very simple, fast meal to cook. You can even cook the night before and you'll have something for lunch the next few days. 

Ingredients:
1 cup quinoa
1 8oz pkg firm tofu, cubed
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup onion, minced.
5 mushrooms, chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoons sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 - 1 teaspoon crushed red peppers (depending on how spicy you like it)
salt and pepper
1 bunch green onions, diced

Directions:
Cook quinoa in a pot of salted boiling water according to package instructions.

While quinoa is cooking, add heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown tofu with 1 tablespoon of sesame oil. when tofu has browned, remove from pan. Sauté peppers, onions, mushrooms and garlic with the remaining 1 tablespoon of sesame oil. Add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, salt and pepper and red peppers. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors. 

Mix with cooked quinoa and top with green onions.
