In a pinch? What to cook for dinner? This has easily become one of my main “go to” recipes for a quick meal. The best part, you can use random vegetables in your fridge. In this specific case I had some veggies starting to go bad sitting in my fridge. I just didn’t get to use them on time. Instead of feeling the bottomless pit of shame and guilt for not using up my dearly beloved vegetables that I went out of my way to buy organic, spent money on, and someone spent time caring and growing them, I just toss them all in 1 lovely recipe!
A stir fry is so versatile and can be changed up so much, that I probably have never “officially” made one the same way. Always different vegetable combinations., and you can opt for rice, or (one of my favorites) rice noodles, even other options. Don’t be afraid of getting creative! You can add any veggies you can think of. You can also easily “sneak” super foods in that members of your family wouldn’t normally eat. Sneaky Sneaky!
Aside from cooking the quinoa (or whatever else you choose as your base) It only takes about 15 minutes to cook. Sometimes I precook some rice or quinoa to throw into recipes throughout the week so that can majorly speed up the process.
Quinoa, Broccoli, Snow Peas, Spinach, Kale, Bok Choy (The greens are all in 1 bowl), Carrots, Scallions, Beets, Ginger, Garlic, Sesame Seeds, Sriracha, Coconut Oil, Turmeric, Rice Vinegar, and Tamari (Organic Gluten Free Soy Sauce)
Add Everything to Pan or Wok and Stir together until Vegetables are Vibrant Green
I like to serve more sriracha on the side in case someone prefers this dish more spicy!
