  4. While the tofu bakes, prepare the quinoa according to package directions.
  5. Rinse and slice the cucumber and cherry tomatoes and set aside.
  6. To prepare the pesto, combine all pesto ingredients in a food processor, and pulse until smooth and creamy.
  7. When tofu is ready, transfer to a medium bowl and add in the pesto. Toss until all pieces are evenly coated.
  8. To make the bowls, divide the quinoa into 4 dishes. Top with equal amounts of artichokes, tomatoes, and cucumber. Divide the tofu among the bowls, and top each with a large spoonful of hummus. Serve immediately!
