Number of Servings: 4


    1 med onion, diced
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 bunch spinach, washed and stemmed
    1 bunch cilantro, washed
    2 cups veg broth
    2 jalapenos, 1 seeded*
    1 cup quinoa, washed
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1/2 brick tofu, cubed


Put spinach, cilantro, jalapenos, and one cup of broth in a blender, and puree to liquefy. I found I had to add the greenery in several installments and needed to add a little more broth to keep things going, but it did become a wonderful bright green liquid in the end. In a large pot, heat oil over medium high heat. Add onions and saute until translucent. Add garlic and quinoa, and saute for a couple of minutes. Add green liquid, and remaining broth. At this point I also tossed in a half a brick of tofu, cubed. Increase heat to high and bring to boil. Once mixture is boiling, cover, reduce heat to low, and let simmer for 15 min. After 15 min turn off the heat, but leave covered and let stand for 10 min. Fluff with fork, and season if desired. Mine needed a tiny touch of salt, but that was it.
