1 teaspoon cilantro
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1/2 cup chopped red pepper

Heat the olive oil in a large pan. Add the shallots, cilantro and cardamom.
Sauté for a couple of minutes and then add the red pepper and garlic. When red pepper just begins to soften, add the tofu, orange zest, and green beans.
Stir fry for a couple of minutes, and add the smoked paprika and dried tomatoes. Toss in the cooked quinoa and season to taste with salt and pepper.
