Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa Stir-Fry With Vegetables and Chicken

1 cup quinoa, rinsed
1 medium carrot, thinly sliced
1 medium green bell pepper, cored, seeded and chopped
1 teaspoons grated ginger
1 clove garlic, sliced
2 cups snow peas, trimmed
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg, beaten
15 1/2 oz grilled chicken breast, chopped
2 scallions, chopped

Recipe Directions for Quinoa Stir-Fry With Vegetables and Chicken

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Add peas, sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute.

  4. Remove vegetables and return skillet to heat; add quinoa, along with egg. Cook, stirring constantly, until egg is evenly distributed, about 2 minutes.

  5. Add vegetables, chicken, scallions, cilantro and soy sauce; cook 1 minute more. Divide stir-fry among 4 bowls; serve warm.
