I based this quick and easy stir-fry recipe on a recommendation from Trader Joe's. Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a South American grain, lower in carbohydrates and higher in protein and fat than white rice.

  1. Cook the quinoa in the chicken broth as you would prepare rice (stovetop, microwave, or rice cooker), mixing in the basil just before serving.
  2. Heat oil in a wok and stir fry the chicken till browned, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add vegetables; stir fry 2 minutes.
  4. Add garlic, salt, pepper; continue to stir fry till peppers are slightly limp.
  5. Top the quinoa with the stir fry mixture and serve hot.
