Before you start

2 frying pan

Make the black beans

  • Peel and finely chop the onion
  • Put the pan onto a medium heat and add 1 tbsp oil. Add the onion with a big pinch of salt and fry for 4-5 minutes, until soft. Peel and chop the garlic, add to the pan with the coriander, chilli and cinnamon and fry for 2 minutes until fragrant. Pour the beans with their liquid into the pan. Stir through the cacao powder. Bring to a simmer and simmer for 15 minutes until thickened and saucy. If it gets too thick, add a splash of water

Prepare the cabbage

  • Shred the cabbage and add to a mixing bowl with the juice from ½ lime and a  big pinch of flakey salt. Massage the cabbage for a couple of minutes to soften it. Roughly chop the coriander and stir it through the cabbage. Taste and season to perfection

Prepare the tofu

  • Cut the tofu into 2cm cubes
  • Put a pan onto high heat and add 1 tbsp oil. Once hot, fry the tofu for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and crunchy round the edges

Make the tahini dressing

  • Add the tahini to a bowl, squeeze in the juice from ½ lime, then add the water in batches, whisking well with as much water as necessary to get a thick cream consistency. Season with a big pinch of sea salt

Assemble the bowl

  • Cook the quinoa as per instructions on the packet
  • Divide the quinoa between the bowls and top with the tofu, black beans, cabbage, cherry tomatoes, pickled onions. Drizzle over the tahini and finish with more coriander
