My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 cup dry quinoa
- 2 cups water
- 1 small zucchini
- 1 small yellow bell pepper (can substitute for green, orange, or red)
- 1/2 cup broccoli
- 1/2 onion
- 2/3 red Anjou pear
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce (or soy sauce if you don't like teriyaki)
- 1 tablespoon vegan butter (optional)
- salt and pepper
- 1In a sauce pan add dry quinoa and water; bring to a boil then cover and reduce heat to simmer for 10-15 minutes. You will know quinoa is done when all the water is absorbed and the quinoa looks slightly transluscent.
- 2While the quinoa is cooking; warm up a frying pan to medium heat and add the oil.
- 3Mince the garlic and chop all other vegetables (and pear) into very small cubes (they need to be small so that they mix well with the quinoa and so you get a piece of everything with each bite).
- 4Add garlic, and all chopped veggies (and pear) to frying pan, mixing occasionally. Cook until veggies are soft (~5-6 minutes).
- 5Once qunoa is done add it to the frying pan and veggies.
- 6Add the teriyaki (or soy) sauce (and butter if desired); season to taste.
- 7Garnish with a sprig of parsley or chives and serve (can be served hot or cold; I prefer hot).
