Stir fried veggie quinoa
This recipe came about because I had leftover quinoa, and I didn't want to eat it plain. So I looked and saw all the veggies I just bought, and decided a stir fry was in order. You could sub any of the veggies in this and I am sure it would taste great.
There is no sauce, it is just well seasoned and keeps it basic and delicious
This makes a lot, so you will have some leftovers for the week. :)
8 oz. sliced mushrooms (I used cremini)
1 large carrot, peeled, cut in half and cut into matchsticks or half rounds
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
3 stalks green onion, sliced thin
2 cups of shredded green cabbage
3 cups cooked quinoa
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2-1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes (optional)
In a large saute pan, saute the veggies all together over medium high heat. Keep stirring until the cabbage starts to wilt. You don't want to overcook the veggies, they should be still a little crispy.
Add the seasonings and stir well.
Add the precooked quinoa to the hot pan, and stir well. Cook for another 3-5 minutes until everything is hot.
Test the seasoning and adjust as needed.
Then, serve hot and enjoy. I ate a huge plate of this for dinner, but is a side too.
I hope you try and enjoy it as much as I did.
Be creative and try different veggies. Just remember not to overcook the veggies.
This made enough for me to have 3 large servings for the week. :)
