Well, I love to use tofu, cucumber, carrot and mint as a filing for vegan sushi and when I prepare summer rolls, I usually dip them into a creamy sauce made of peanut mush, soy sauce and lemon juice, which you can check out in my recipe “raw summer roll salad bowl”. Peanuts, soy sauce and lemons are such a great combination! That’s why I created this tasty tofu quinoa salad for you!

The benefits of quinoa are that is has less carbs than rice e.g. and it’s packed with many plant-based proteins. Besides, its preparation takes 15 minutes only (compared with 40 minutes for wholemeal rice).

This vegan salad is perfect for warm summer days and can be easily prepared to take with you on your next journey!
