    Very tasty! Made the tofu sauce with basil, cilantro and parsley and a little extra lemon.

    Green dressing was meh, rest of it really good! I definitely suggest making up your own yogurt dressing. Obv this is time-consuming to fix since you separately prep each component but it isn’t too bad if you’re meal prepping for 3-4 days.

    Delicious! Traded sweet potato for carrots, traded mushrooms for broccoli. The sauce was too watery, need a real blender?

    I’m not a vegan nor a vegetarian but I loved this dish and added it to my regular meal line up. I only used half the garlic and perhaps that was too much. I also added lemon juice and olive oil to the “sauce” and it was better that way.

    I loved the bowl, but wasn’t crazy about the dressing. Maybe I bought the wrong kind of tofu.

    It came out awesome! I substituted the quinoa with a wild rice mix. I also replaced the salt with Spike seasoning. Simple enough to make..........

    Easy & quick to make. Like other reviews, green dressing was super blah! I have to put all sorts of spices just to make it edible.

    Loved the sauce - however I did add a bit of jalapeño. Great base recipe! I replaced the quinoa with lentils.

    I did a quick version by ditching the dressing and using some Tamari instead. It’s a great idea and you can change out the veggies to accommodate any leftover veggies or whatever you’ve got on-hand.

    Was really good and fulfilling! Didn’t care much for the sauce so next time I’ll try a different sauce.

    It is a bit labour intensive but very good. I didn't have any quinoa on hand so made brown rice with pecans. The combination was nice and you can adjust the herbs and spices easily to fit your own tastes. Well worth the effort.

    Awesome!!! I didn’t have silken tofu but used Greek yogurt for the dressing instead and it turned out great! Also added Brussels sprouts and fried tofu squares. My hubby loved it! It’s a nice base recipe which you could change up in infinite ways.

    Good flavor and overall easy to make!
    Hey Mary!!! a year ago
    This was a very delicious meal for me and my family. Although it took 3 hours to make we still enjoyed this. It is really easy to make (I’m 13) but u do need a lot of patience. We did add a little flavor to the quinoa but it was very good. I do think u should double the mushrooms because they do shrink and don’t make as much. Next time I would also shrink the amount of the green sauce because it made A LOT. Other than that I would recommend this to a lot of people.💛😊

    love it! nice combination of flavors. the sauce is excellent! ended up going with red cabbage as my leafy vegetable. took a long time to cook, but tasty!

    Used spinach and didn't prepare the sauce in order to simplify. Quick and delicious!

    Quinoa and sweet potatoe are a match made in heaven. Could of used more direction with 'fresh herbs', but it turned out good when i just went with whatever i had.

    Fantastic. Nice to have something that feels healthy yet nourishing. Easy to make substitutions. Loved the silken tofu sauce. So fresh!
