Spicy quinoa with aromatic herbs, vegetables and smoked tofu

Everyone is talking about quinoa (pronounced keenwah) and I love it!  Known as the “gold of the Incas” quinoa has tons of protein, iron, fiber, lysine as well of lots of vitamin B2. Quinoa is light and nutty in flavor and leaves you feeling energized.
