Roasted Pepper, Quinoa and Tofu Salad

Home » Salad » Roasted Pepper, Quinoa and Tofu Salad

This was my Saturday morning inspiration and creation. “Roasted Pepper, Quinoa and Tofu Salad”. Feeling inspired after making a batch of hearty tomato and lentil soup, I explored the fridge to see what other possibilities existed with ingredients in the fridge.

Grab a little bit of this to make something delicious. Let your imagination lead ingredients to the mixing bowl.

My husband asked if he could have some salad…that has something to say about the dish! lol
