So I have to say, I’m pretty proud of myself for making this. I’ve never been a great cook, but after surviving most of the past year on my college cafeteria’s far too frequent “stir fry days”, I felt confident enough to make my own, hopefully better, variation. I added chicken and egg to this recipe, but it could be easily modified to be either/both vegetarian and/or vegan.
I’m gonna be honest, I didn’t really measure any of the ingredients, so you’ll have to bear with me…
First, coarsely chop:
- red pepper
- green onion
While you are doing this, steam some edamame. You can either do this in the microwave or a boiling pan (microwave is obviously easier). Next, prepare the quinoa. I had already prepared quinoa a few days before, so all I had to do was reheat it.
Then, add everything to a pan with olive oil. Continue to stir the ingredients, and add dashes of soy sauce (preferably the low sodium version) as you go. I also added about a teaspoon of chopped garlic for flavor.
Turn the heat down low, and in a different pan scramble one egg. Once it’s cooked, toss it in with the quinoa and veggies. After this, I added a few pieces of pulled chicken, heated it for a few more minutes, and chucked it into a bowl.
Feeds either one very hungry person or two normal people. 🙂
