Our Arizona family bought us a bag of quinoa the other day. They take care of spoil us like that. I love them.
If you haven’t tried quinoa yet, you seriously should. It is one of those foods that I originally wrote off on principle. You know….because it sounded too healthy.
It turns out I love the stuff! You cook it like you would cook rice and I boiled mine in chicken broth to give it extra flavor. Then I wanted to make a whole meal out of it, so I made it into a stir fry! It’s actually more like fried rice than stir fry, but “fried quinoa” sounded weird.
This is another recipe that can be adapted to your tastes so easily! Don’t like red peppers? Don’t use ’em! Want to add mushrooms? Do it! Want to make it even more filling than it already is? Add leftover chicken! Like teriyaki sauce better than soy sauce? Add more teriyaki and no soy sauce at all! Live on the wild side. Go crazy. Indulge your culinary impulses.
Or if you’re in a more tame and orderly mood…just follow the recipe. 🙂
