Asian-style Quinoa and Veggies

Here’s another one of my easy Meatless Monday ideas with only 4 main ingredients!! Quinoa with veggies and Asian-style sauce. (One serving of quinoa has 8 grams of protein! You can find it in most supermarkets, as well as Trader Joe’s) You can substitute or add other veggies as well!
1_ - 1 (85)
 1 cup uncooked quinoa, well-rinsed
 2 cups Veggie broth/water
 Broccoli
 Mushrooms

Sauce:
2 Tblsp soy sauce or tamari
2 tsp rice vinegar
1 tsp toasted sesame oil (or olive oil)

 

 

Bring veg broth/water to boil.
Add quinoa, return to boil, cover and simmer 20 min until quinoa is translucent.
While quinoa is cooking, cook broccoli & mushrooms (boil, steam, stir-fry or saute) I like to boil/steam broccoli & saute mushrooms.
Mix quinoa, broccoli and mushrooms together
Mix sauce ingredients and add to mixture (plus some garlic powder and powdered ginger)

There you have it! Enjoy!

    • Make sure you rinse the quinoa well before you cook it. Cover and simmer until quinoa looks translucent and you can see the little rings. I usually cook for 20 min (you may have to add a little more liquid). Good luck!
