Curry Quinoa Broccoli with Baked Tofu

I love spicy food year round, but I try to eat it more often in the winter, especially after a long day. I find it soothing but I know some people have an aversion to spicy food but the great thing about cooking is, you can always adjust a recipe to your liking.
