Ingredients serve 4


  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped into bite-size pieces
  • 250 g extra-firm tofu
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1.5 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tbsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup roasted pumpkin/sunflower seeds

In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup water and salt to boil and stir in quinoa. Cover and reduce heat to simmer until all water is absorbed (10 minutes or so). Remove from heat, fluff, cover and set aside.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until starting to brown, about three minutes. Stir in cauliflower, tofu, raisins, spices, salt, pepper, and vegetable broth.

Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to simmer until cauliflower is starting to become tender, about three minutes. Uncover and continue to cook until broth reduces by half, about five minutes.

Remove from heat, stir in seeds reserving a few.
