I am super excited about this Tandoori Faux Chicken Quinoa Bowl – there is so much flavour going on 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!

For the tandoori faux chicken.

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 flavours like a sponge. Once the tofu is well flavoured, it is baked until slightly crispy. Super simple.

For the quinoa.

Quinoa is also one of those foods that will absorb flavours easily. This healthy seed is simmered in a well flavoured broth and veggies, resulting in a dish that’s rich and flavourful.

To assemble.

This is the fun part, toss everything together and top with various toppings. I love to add fresh tomatoes, snap peas, cilantro and plenty of fresh lemon juice. This faux chicken quinoa bowl is healthy, hearty and super tasty. If you are not that keen on quinoa, once you try this dish, you will change your mind. You will love it!

I love adding quinoa to various gluten-free dishes that I make 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. So give it a try, and let me know what you think. I always love to hear from you 🙂

Two of my favourite gluten-free vegan dishes are Soba Noodles with Vegetables in Coconut Ginger Sauce and Gluten-Free Vegan Schnitzel
