Quick n Easy Quinoa Stir-Fry

Ok so I’m in a rush today…long day of work and other stuff ahead so I’m writing this blog post early in the morning before I get started! Eating healthy can be challenging at times for the same reason. We have sooo many things to do that we hardly have time to prepare a healthy meal. And it can be a struggle finding healthy, fast food while on the go….it really sucks at times! I actually have a few recipes I turn to when I’m in a time crunch. I will say that it really helps if you already have at least one of the ingredients prepared ahead of time. So let’s get to it…my stir-fried quinoa recipe!

What you’ll need:
– 1 cup of cooked Quinoa  (this is the ingredient that’s good to have prepared ahead of time..see my post on)
– 1 small chopped bell pepper (I prefer sweet)
– 1/2 – 3/4 small chopped onion
– 1/8 cup cooked peas
– 1 egg white
– garlic powder
– 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce (low sodium and/or one without high fructose corn syrup preferred)
– lean protein such as chopped chicken or fish/seafood such as chopped salmon or shrimp (optional especially since Quinoa is a great plant-based protein!)

Instructions:
1) Prepare quinoa per instructions and set aside.
2) Stir-fry chopped veggies over medium high heat until they start to soften and brown.
3) Add egg white to skillet and scramble into mixed veggies.
4) Mix in seasonings and sauce then add quinoa; stir-fry all ingredients 2-3 minutes.

This recipe should make enough for one to two people so increase ingredient measurements as needed.
