Quinoa Stir-Fry

I threw this dish together one day a couple of years ago and I’ve been making versions of it regularly ever since. It is a low-calorie, highly satisfying meal. I think it’s time I shared it with the rest of you. You can watch this short video to learn the basic ingredients and my method, but I also share the list of ingredients and proportions below.

QUINOA STIR-FRY

oil – 1/3 c. chopped onions – 1/4 c. chopped celery – 1/4 c. sliced mushrooms – 1/4 c. diced carrots – 1/4 c. zucchini slices – 1/4 c. pre-cooked green beans (or diced sweet red peppers) – 1 c. chopped kale – 1/4 c. chicken broth – 1 tsp. herbs (your choice) – 1 or 2 T. soy sauce – 1-1/2 c. pre-cooked quinoa

Optional additions:  1/4 tsp. sesame oil and 1/2 c. chicken, turkey or other leftover meat.

In a hot skillet, saute’ onions in a little oil, adding each of the rest of the ingredients in the order listed. Serves 2 as a full meal, or 4 as a side serving. Quinoa is a good source of complete protein, containing all nine amino acids in addition to lysine, riboflavin, manganese and magnesium.
