Peel and mince the shallot(s). Dice the dried apricots. Slice green beans into rounds. Drain tofu and cut into 1 inch cubes.
Heat 1 tsp (2 tsp) vegetable oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add almonds and cook until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add minced shallot and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add quinoa and 1¼ cup (2½ cups) water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until the spirals burst and water is absorbed, 10 to 12 minutes.
Heat 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add cubed tofu and a pinch of salt. Cook until lightly browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Add tandoori spice and cook until aromatic, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
Add the diced apricots and sliced green beans to the cooked quinoa. Cook over low heat until the green beans are tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Taste the apricot quinoa pilaf and add salt as necessary.
Divide the apricot quinoa pilaf between bowls. Top with tandoori spiced tofu and mango chutney. Tuck in!
