Fall Week: Fall (in a bowl)

Sometimes culinary experiments go horribly wrong (we don’t post the results of those disasters) and sometimes they go wonderfully right. Fall (in a bowl) is the result of a deliciously successful culinary experiment.


1 package extra-firm tofu, drained, patted dry and cubed

1 tbsp olive oil

2 Macintosh apples, chopped

Dried cranberries

Chopped walnuts

Apple cider

Maple syrup

Shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1. Cook quinoa according to package directions.

2. Toast walnuts in a dry skillet over medium heat, about 3 minutes or until fragrant.

3. Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium high and sauté the tofu, cooking until browned.

4. Throw everything (quinoa, tofu, apples, dried cranberries and toasted walnuts) in a bowl. Mix it up. Add a little apple cider. Add a little more. Add a little maple syrup. Stir.

5. Divide into servings. Top with cheese.
