  1. Make tofu marinade - Mix together soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, hot sauce, and sesame oil. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Tofu - Slice into 3/4” (~2 cm) thick rectangles and place into a pan where all pieces can be arranged in a single layer. Cover in marinade for at least 20 minutes and up 1 day. (Can be done up 1 day ahead)
  3. Make miso-honey sauce - Mix together honey, miso, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  4. Eggplant - Slice into spears and transfer to another sheet pan.
  5. Cook quinoa - If prepping right before cooking, skip to make steps #1 - 2 before returning to this step. Double if making Thursday’s dinner. Combine quinoa with 2x the amount of water (or stock if you prefer) in a saucepan. Add in some salt. Bring to a boil covered. Lower heat, keep covered, and cook until liquid is absorbed, 8 to 10 minutes. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
