My current food obsession: quinoa. It really is the perfect food (if you aren't a low-carber)! You can do so much with it, and it is just so darn good for you! Last night, I modified this recipe to make a delicious stir-fry.
Quinoa Summer Veggie Stir-fry
1 c quinoa, cooked according to package directions
1/2 yellow squash
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1 handful of fresh green beans (or asparagus) trimmed and broken into small pieces
1 c baby bella mushrooms, chopped
1 1/2 cloves garlic, chopped
sea salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes
dash of hot sauce (I used )
1/2 T soy sauce
1 T balsamic vinegar
Heat a small amount of olive oil in a wok or large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, cook until translucent. Add garlic, cook for about a minute. Add remaining vegetables. Season with sea salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes to taste. Add soy sauce. Stir-fry until tender. Spoon in quinoa and add balsamic vinegar. Stir to combine. Again, season with sea salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes to taste. I served with a simple salad. Enjoy!
