Put Quinoa (1/2 cup), Flaxseeds (2 tablespoon) and one cup water into a small pot and cook until they become soft. It usually takes about 20-30 minutes.
After Brown Rice (1 cup) is cooked, it’s time for the Mario making! Separate rice in two bowls, and put Canned Tomato Purée (4 tablespoon) in one of them.
Slice up Tofu (to taste) to make his eyes, logo on a hat, and the question marks on the magic boxes.
Cut Red Bell Pepper (1/2) to make his “M” logo on the hat.
Shred Nori Sheet (1) to make his mustache and hair.
For blocks, cut Tofu (1 package) into small cubes and fry them in a heated pan together with Soy Sauce (4 tablespoon), Miso Paste (1 tablespoon) and a bit of water, until they turn brown.
Goomba: Do the same, but cut the tofu rounder so it will look like a Goomba instead.
For magic boxes, cut the tofu into cubes and fry them in the pan, but this time instead add Curry Powder (2 tablespoon) and a bit of water. Fry them until they turn yellow.
Cut Fresh Ginger (2 tablespoon), Fresh Thyme (1 tablespoon), and Lettuce (2 slice) into pieces. Boil Corn (1) and Edamame (300 gram) in different pots until they are ready then put it all together in a big bowl.
Then squeeze the Lime (1)! The citrus flavor is a huge part of this salad, so squeeze it like you mean it!
Put the grain salad on a plate.
Place the Tofu boxes below.
First, add the blocks. Take the brown tofu and wrap thinly cut dried seaweed around it so it looks like blocks.
As for the magic boxes, place question mark-shaped tofu cuts on top of the yellow tofu cubes. Then use a toothpick to put tiny dots of Canned Tomato Purée (1 teaspoon) on all for corners.
Slice the Star Fruit (to taste) and it will give you a perfect shape of a star.
Place the Goomba’s face on the salad, then add the body using cut tofu. I made his face by cutting Dried Seaweed (to taste) and just two tiny dots of tofu, as you can see in the picture.
All your hard work is finally paying off now. Congratulations, you’ve earned it! Enjoy!
