  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil (30ml)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated (15g)
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 1 cup snap peas, trimmed (150g)
  • 1 cup broccoli florets (90g)
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce (60ml)
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar (30ml)
  • 1 tablespoon honey (15ml)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (8g)
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the quinoa and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the quinoa is tender and the liquid is absorbed.

  2. While the quinoa is cooking, heat the sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger, and sauté for about 1 minute or until fragrant.

  3. Add the sliced bell pepper, julienned carrot, snap peas, and broccoli florets to the skillet. Stir-fry for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables are crisp-tender.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, and cornstarch until well combined. Pour the sauce over the vegetables in the skillet and stir to coat evenly. Continue cooking for another 2 minutes or until the sauce thickens.

  5. Remove the skillet from heat and add the cooked quinoa. Toss everything together until well combined.

  6. Serve the Quinoa and Vegetable Stir-Fry hot, garnished with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
