This Barbecue Tofu and Veggie Bowl has brought me back to tofu. For awhile I had kind of burnt myself out when it came to tofu until I recently started to cook it until it is nice and crispy and toss if with my favorite barbecue sauce. Then paired with some crispy veggies, sweet pineapple, and nutty quinoa - so so good. And the leftovers, if you are lucky enough to have any, make for some amazing lettuce wraps.

- 1 cup quinoa
- 2 tsp coconut oil, divided (or vegetable oil)
- 15 oz. extra firm tofu, cut into cubes
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- Salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
- 2 cups broccoli
- 1 U zucchini, sliced into half moons
- 1 cup pineapple, chopped
- 1 U red pepper, sliced
Prepare the quinoa according to package directions. Press the tofu using a tofu press or paper towels to remove moisture. Cut the tofu into cubes and season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Heat half the coconut oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Carefully add the tofu and cook for 4-5 minutes per side or until browned and crispy. Toss with barbecue sauce while still hot. Remove from the pan and set aside. Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel.
Add the remaining coconut oil. Add the broccoli and 1-2 tbsp. of water. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes until bright green. Open and add the remaining vegetables and pineapple. Cook for 3-5 minutes until tender crisp.
Create the bowls by layering the veggies and tofu over the quinoa. Drizzle with extra barbecue sauce if desired.
