Ingredients
  

  • 1 Cup Uncooked Quinoa
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 1 Small Onion small dice
  • 1 Carrot small dice
  • 1 Rib of Celery small dice
  • 1/2 of a Red Bell Pepper small dice
  • 1/2 Cup Frozen Peas
  • 1 Cup Frozen Cut Green Beans
  • 1 Cup Chopped Fresh Pineapple
  • For the Sauce:
  • 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 tsp Agave
  • 1/2 tsp Rice Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Ginger

Instructions
 

  • Rinse quinoa under cold running water for at least 30 seconds. Put rinsed quinoa in a medium pot with 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Once it boils, reduce heat to low, put a lid on and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until all of the water is absorbed. If you are starting with precooked quinoa, it will be about 3 1/2 cups, cooked.
  • Meanwhile, in a large non stick skillet, sauté onion, carrot and celery for 3-4 minutes add a tablespoon of water if things start sticking to the pan. Next, add the red bell pepper and continue sautéing 2-3 minutes or until the carrots are tender.
  • While the vegetables are sautéing, in a small bowl, combine soy sauce, agave, rice vinegar, onion and garlic powder and ground ginger and stir to combine.
  • Add the peas, green beans and sauce mixture into the skillet and cook for 1 minute to defrost the vegetables. Next add the pineapple and stir to combine. Finally, add all of the cooked quinoa and fold the mixture until everything is evenly distributed.
