Smoky Tofu & Mushroom Salad

Smoked tofu and smoky baby portobello mushrooms with avocado, edamame, quinoa and a maple-lime dressing.

I first had the salad that inspired this recipe at a spa day that was a birthday treat, I loved that it was super flavourful and filling enough that it didn't feel like a salad, but it also felt super nourishing and energising too. 

This salad is also super simple to make, simply cook off the mushrooms, season with a smoky marinade then stir in the tofu, then toss together the quinoa and veggies with the dressing in a large bowl and you're good to go!
