Quinoa Vegetable Stir Fry

255. Tonight dinner was a Vegetarian's Delight!
I picked up Gluten Free, Organic TriColor Quinoa at Trader Joe's Market.
Then, sautéed in olive oil, 3/4 cups onions, 3 minced garlic gloves, 1 chopped green pepper, 2 shredded carrots, 2 cups cut broccoli, 1 cup sliced mushrooms and 2 cups spinach.

Prepared 2 cups quinoa in salted water. Then added 1 cup vegetable stock to the vegetables. Seasoned with salt, pepper, minced ginger, red pepper flakes and 1/4 cup soy sauce.

I plated the veggies over the quinoa. If you have never made quinoa, it is similar to preparing rice. Same concept only you need to rinse the quinoa with cool water and drain before covering with water and cooking.
(New yellow square plates from Pier 1 Imports for $3.00 each!!!)
Fresh, healthy and satisfying!
