Quinoa stir-fry for efficient, awesome people
1 Cup quinoa
1.5 Cups water
2 Cloves garlic (crushed)
2 Tbsp olive oil
Sliced carrots, mushrooms, tofu, onion
Black pepper, salt, basil, oregano
Combine quinoa, garlic, water, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes. At the 7 minute mark, mix in the carrots and mushrooms. This step gives you the flavor of vegetable broth, without all the sodium. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil and cook the onion until it’s translucent. Add the tofu and heat through. Add the quinoa and toss, sprinkling pepper, salt, basil and oregano to taste. Serve on salad with tomatoes for garnish. This dish is savory (with a hint of sweetness from the carrots), versatile and deeee-licious.
