I use 2 - 3 cups of cooked quinoa, and 2 cups of chopped vegetables. That makes 3 large or 4 average servings. Super hungry adults with high protein requirements may need to make it 2 servings and/or add some tofu, tempeh or seitan for extra protein.
This easy vegetable stir fry recipe can be cooked in a wok, a fry pan or sautë pan. Use what veggies you like, or have on hand. That could include onions, garlic, mushrooms, carrots, celery, cabbage, fresh ginger, peppers, zucchini, broccoli, etc.
If you keep the proportions the same, this recipe will expand nicely to serve a crowd.
It was delicious - thank you for this recipe. A couple of alterations: I skipped the steps 8 & 9, having cooked the veggies first, then stirring in the quinoa and cooking another 5 minutes. This was my first quinoa, and I loved it - Miranda P.
