Before you start
You will need a wok or frying pan.
Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.
- In a bowl or shallow dish, mix the soy sauce, rice vinegar and sesame seed oil. Pat-dry the tofu, then cut it into 2 cm cubes. Transfer the cubes to the bowl, mix well and let rest at room temperature for 20-30 min.
- During this time, cook the quinoa.
- Coarsely chop the onion and mince the chili pepper. Heat half of the canola oil in a skillet or wok over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté 2-3 min, taking care not to let it burn. Add the chili pepper and pressed garlic, then cook 1 min with stirring. Add the frozen vegetables taken directly from the freezer, and add salt and pepper to taste. Cook 6-7 min with occasional stirring until the vegetables are cooked al dente. Cover and cook an additional 2-3 min.
- Add the remaining canola oil to a small pan over high heat. Drain the tofu cubes, reserving the marinade, then add the cubes to the pan and sauté about 5 min, with occasional stirring, until they are golden-brown. Pour the reserved marinade and the tofu in the wok with the vegetables. Add the grated ginger and cook a few more minutes, with stirring. Adjust the seasoning.
- Sprinkle with the chopped scallions then serve the stir-fry and quinoa onto the warmed plates.
