I am super excited about this Tandoori Faux Chicken Quinoa Bowl – so much flavor is happening in this Indian-spiced vegan dish. Whether you are following a plant-based diet or need a break from meat, this dish is beyond delicious, even without meat!

Tandoori Faux Chicken Quinoa Bowl is Hearty and Wholesome

In this recipe, I used tofu for the faux chicken. To prepare the tofu, it is first marinated in the most flavourful sauce. Tofu is excellent for marinating because it absorbs the flavors like a sponge. Once the tofu is well flavored, it is baked until slightly crispy. Super simple.

The quinoa

Quinoa is also one of those foods that will absorb flavors easily. This healthy seed is simmered in a well-flavored broth and veggies, resulting in a rich and tasty dish.


The fun part is tossing everything together and topping it with various toppings. I love to add fresh tomatoes, snap peas, cilantro, and plenty of fresh lemon juice.

This faux chicken quinoa bowl is nutritious, hearty, and super tasty. If you are not keen on quinoa, you will change your mind once you try this dish. You will love it!

I love adding quinoa to various gluten-free dishes because of its powerful health benefits. Quinoa is a gluten-free super seed high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain sufficient amounts of all nine essential amino acids. It is also high in fiber, iron, potassium, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, vitamin E, phosphorus, and various beneficial antioxidants.
