Who knew a vegan salad could be so protein-rich? You can credit the quinoa, tempeh, and, yes, even the broccoli for that. Plus, tempeh is made from fermented soybeans, so it boosts gut health.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together 1 1/4 cups water, quinoa, and salt in a saucepan; bring to a boil over high. Cover and reduce heat to medium; simmer 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat, and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Stir together cabbage, radishes, and cooked quinoa in a large bowl.

Step 2

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over high. Add broccoli; cook until tender and bright green, about 5–6 minutes. Immediately transfer broccoli to a bowl filled with ice water: Plunge broccoli into water, and let stand 5 minutes. Drain broccoli well; add to quinoa mixture.

Step 3

Stir together lime juice, miso, and 3 tablespoons of the oil in a small bowl. Drizzle over quinoa mixture, tossing to coat.

Step 4

Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add tempeh; cook, stirring often, until starting to crisp, about 5 minutes. Add peanuts and garlic; cook, stirring often, until mixture is very crispy, about 4 minutes. Add to quinoa mixture; stir to combine.
