In the Winter I crave warm, filling foods like soups and casseroles, and in the Summer, my taste buds long for recipes made with fresh veggies. In the Spring, I'm all about dishes that combine the two, and here's one made with quinoa, tofu, and three of my favorite veggies. It's seasoned with cumin, fresh ginger, and dried apricots, so it has a sweet and savory flavor.
