Recipe Ingredients for quinoa stir fry

3/4 cup quinoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 c carrots (sliced)
1 red bell pepper
2 teaspoons grated ginger
1 clove garlic, sliced
2 cups broccoli
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg, beaten
8 oz grilled chicken breast, chopped
2 scallions, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Recipe Directions for quinoa stir fry

Place quinoa in a small saucepan with 3/4 cup water and 1/4 tsp salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook, undisturbed, until quinoa absorbs water, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork and leave uncovered. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook carrot, stirring occasionally, until it softens, about 1 minute. Add bell pepper, ginger, garlic and chile, if desired; cook, stirring frequently, about 2 minutes. Add broccoli, sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute. Remove vegetables and return skillet to heat; add quinoa, along with egg. Cook, stirring constantly, until egg is evenly distributed, about 2 minutes. Add vegetables, chicken, scallions, cilantro and soy sauce; cook 1 minute more. Divide stir-fry among 4 bowls; serve warm.
