Source: Simple Veganista | Serves: 4 | Time: 35 min


What I changed:

  • Doubled the amount of corn

  • Replaced scallions with onion

  • Skipped cabbage

  • Skipped the optional basil

Ingredients

1 cup dried #quinoa, rinsed

1 3/4 cups home made vegetable broth

2 cups #corn

1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped

8 oz. #mushrooms, sliced

2 #carrots, peeled and diced

1 small #zucchini, diced

1/2 cup #BellPepper (I did red), cored and diced

1 tbsp sesame oil

3 tbsp coconut aminos

3 tsp garlic powder

S&P, to taste

Sriracha, to taste


Instructions

Rinse your quinoa in a fine mesh sieve under cool running water. In medium sauce pan combine quinoa with 1 3/4 cups water or vegetable broth, bring to a boil, simmer covered for 15 minutes. Once done, remove cover and let set for another 10 minutes to soak up the excess water. Fluff with a fork and set aside.


While the quinoa is cooking, work on the veggies. In wok or large skillet, heat oil over medium high, add vegetables and stir fry for 1 minute or so. Add aminos, garlic powder and other seasonings to taste. Cook for another 3-4 minutes stirring occasionally, use a lid if needed to help soften the vegetables a bit.


Add in quinoa to the veggie mixture, turn heat to high, cook another 3 – 5 minutes stirring constantly adding a drizzle of oil if mixture seems too dry.


Serve warm with a drizzle of sriracha.
