    Cook the quinoa
    In a medium pot, combine the quinoa, 1 cup of water and a pinch of salt (double the water for 4 portions); bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and let simmer, 14 to 16 minutes, until the quinoa is tender. Fluff with a fork.

    Mise en place
    While the quinoa cooks, core and thinly slice the bell pepper. Separate the broccoli head from the stem. Cut the broccoli head into bite-sized florets. Peel the broccoli stem and slice into ¼-inch-thick rounds. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Pat the tofu dry with paper towel and cut into ½ inch cubes.

    Cook the tofu
    In a large pan (non-stick, if possible), heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high. Season the tofu with the spice blend. Add the seasoned tofu to the pan and cook, stirring often, 9 to 11 minutes, until browned on all sides and heated through. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; season with S&P to taste. Reserve the pan.
