- Rinse the quinoa well in a fine mesh strainer. Put 2 cups of water in a
medium saucepan; add salt and the rinsed quinoa. Bring to a boil, reduce
the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from
the heat and let sit, covered, for 10 minutes longer to allow the grains to
absorb all the water. Fluff with a fork and transfer to a large bowl. Let cool.
- Add the peaches, scallions, and almonds to the quinoa and toss gently.
- In a blender, combine the tofu, lemon juice, olive oil, curry powder, and salt; blend until smooth.
- Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to combine. Add the cilantro and toss again.
