Salad with Rice Quinoa, Tofu, and Green Beans

A salad with rice quinoa, tofu, and green beans. Fresh green beans are only available for a short period during the year. However, there is no reason not to opt for frozen ones. The freezing process does not cause significant vitamin loss, and enriching the dish with beans will not only be pleasing to the eye but also provide valuable nutrients.
