Preheat the oven to 425°F. Add quinoa, 1 cup (2 cups) water, and a pinch of salt to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until spirals burst and water is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes.
Trim, deseed, and thinly slice the red bell pepper(s) and green bell pepper(s). Peel and thinly slice the onion(s). Thinly slice celery. Slice cucumber(s) into half moons. Trim radishes and cut into matchsticks. Peel and mince the garlic.
Place the sliced bell peppers and sliced onion on a baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp (4 tsp) vegetable oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast until tender and slightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes.
Heat 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble tempeh and add to the skillet along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until golden brown and crisp in places, 4 to 5 minutes. Add Buffalo sauce and cook until slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the minced garlic, sour cream, dill, and a pinch of salt and pepper to a small bowl. Whisk the dill sour cream.
