unnamed (3)Are you in love with quinoa as much as I am? I love using quinoa when ever possible and for this dirty Thai fried quinoa that is what I did exactly.

 

6 SERVINGS TOTAL TIME: 20 MINUTES

Ingredients :

  • 2 cups uncooked quinoa
  • 3 organic peppers, different colors
  • 12 oz fresh green beans
  • 16 oz extra firm tofu, cubed
  • 1-2 tbs fresh ginger, chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Sesame seeds, optional
  • Sauce

     

  • 1/3 cup reduced soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp red curry paste
  • 2 tbs water

Preparation :

  • Cook quinoa according to package instructions

     

  • In a large skillet, over medium to high heat, add all the ingredients except the cooked quinoa and sauce ingredients.

     

  • Cook tofu/veggie mixture for 5-8 minutes until tender stirring occasionally. On the meantime, in a small bowl mix the sauce ingredients. Set aside.

     

  • When the tofu/veggie mixture is almost tender add the quinoa and sauce mixture to the skillet. Mix through and cook further for another minute or so stirring constantly.

     

  • Turn heat off and serve immediately. You may sprinkle some pepper flakes and sesame seeds if desired before serving.

     

  • NOTE: If you feel you don’t have enough sauce you can increase the amount. I do that sometimes but when my kids are eating it I don’t since it may be too spicy for them.

     

  • Recipe suited for lacto-ovo-vegetarians!
