Sweet Chili Lime Tofu

As you may remember, last weekend, my friend Jenna and taught a vegan protein cooking class. Jenna showed out to make delicious sweet chili lime tofu with steamed collard greens and quinoa. The recipe is from Vegan Yum Yum, and it's really delicious. It was so good, that I had to make the dish for dinner. It seems a little daunting when you read the directions, but it's actually pretty quick and easy, so don't let long cooking instructions keep you from making something.

Tofu and quinoa are both high in protein, and even the greens contain protein. This dish contains about 35 grains of protein in total. The average woman needs about 45 grams and the average man needs about 55 a day, so this meal contains almost an entire day's protein needs! So where do vegans get their protein? From their food!
