Tasty Turmeric Quinoa & Tofu

I often suggest quinoa to my clients as a fantastic alternative to rice, pasta to any dish & it’s gluten-free….so it’s easy to digest…contains more calcium than milk & even stimulates milk flow in  breastfeeding mothers!!

Quinoa is also full of magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorus & B3….with the bonus of being plant protein – so this is a meal in itself!!

Here’s a great recipe I found which also includes turmeric – great to support liver, anti-inflam, anti-ox for this time of year….which I LOVE!!  🙂


  • 1/2C quinoa
  • 2tsp olive oil
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 2C baby spinach leaves
  • 1tsp turmeric powder
  • 1tsp curry powder
  • 300g tofu, lightly mashed with fork
  • 2tsp tamari
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded, chopped
