250g firm tofu, cut into cubes
1 small white onion, finely chopped

Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil. Add the quinoa, stir and cook according to packet instructions. Rinse and drain well.
Melt half of the oil in a frying pan over a medium / high heat. Add the tofu and cook until golden on the underside. Use a fish slice to turn over. Repeat steps until golden on all sides. Transfer the tofu to a plate lined with kitchen roll.
Melt the remaining oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and fry
gently for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the cauliflower, stir well and fry for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, chilli pepper and ginger and fry for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the dried spices and salt and stir well. Add the stock and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Add the coconut milk and kale and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the cooked quinoa,
bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and
stir in the lime juice.
