Drooling as I type

Posted by andrea tomkins in: - Meals under 400 calories|Recipes and Food

Looking for a new recipe to try? This one is a keeper, and I’m actually looking forward to the leftovers!

August 25 #dailylunches - Thai tofu quinoa bowl

This is a Thai Tofu Quinoa Bowl from Chatelaine. You can grab the recipe right here.

I used slightly less quinoa, and I didn’t have quite enough ginger, but WHOA nelly… is it ever good. It’s light, it’s spicy, it’s got my number. The next time I make it I will make sure I have enough fresh ginger on hand and crank up the heat.

I saw that recipe and thought I’d make it myself too although I’d probably leave out the tofu. Not a fan….but it sounds so versatile. If I wanted I could add shredded chicken, for example, no?

Looks delish!

I really liked the tofu in this recipe, but yes, you could totally add shredded chicken!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human offspring: Emma (23) and Sarah (21). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
