Did somebody say easy weeknight meal?! This Baked Hoisin Quinoa is a reliable dish in my rotation. It’s easily assembled and baked on a weeknight, but it can also be made several days in advance and stored in the fridge, and then popped into the oven the night you want it. It’s a simple, delicious plant-based meal to add to your repertoire.
I love that this is a one-dish meal. It requires minimal prep work, and is mostly hands-off while everything cooks in the oven. I use frozen broccoli florets in this recipe, but fresh broccoli is great, too. I always have frozen broccoli on hand in my freezer for easy veggie additions. Make sure you press the excess moisture out of your tofu either using a tofu press, or weighted down with a plate between paper towels, for about 15 minutes. This prevents your dish from having too much liquid, and also allows the tofu to soak up the delicious sauce!
This is a meal that I can’t resist going back for seconds for. The combinations of flavors and textures hit all the right notes for me. If you’re looking for more ways to incorporate plant-based, meat-free meals into your life, this is a winner!
