Option to omit the tofu

In a saucepan, cook the quinoa, covered, over low heat with 1 cup of water until all liquid is absorbed. Transfer to a bowl to cool.

Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add tofu and cook for 2 minutes each side or until golden. Towards the end of the cooking time add the mirin to caramelize the tofu. Add the tofu, chickpeas, mint, parsley, tomato and spring onion to the quinoa and combine. Mix through lemon juice and season with a little salt.
