Recipe of the month

This month I want to share another one of my favourite recipes from the "The Beauty Detox Foods" book. I love all kinds of vegetables, as well as quinoa. Very often for dinner I will make Kimberly Snyder's "Quinoa Ten-Veggie Fried Rice".  I love the fact that it is very light meal, easy to make and it is packed with many different veggies. I usually alternate the vegetables, or add some additional to what is listed in the recipe. But if you want to make it just like Kimberly's recipe, then here is a list of all the ingredients you will need  

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups quinoa (1 cup = 250gr)
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 2 Tbs. unrefined coconut oil
  • 1 cup diced white onions (I usually use one mid size onion)
  • 1 cup diced scallions
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbs. minced gingerroot (I usually use about 2cm & I peel it)
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped shiitake mushroom tops (I usually just use regular mushrooms)
  • 1.5 tsp. raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup low sodium tamari
  • 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 red pepper, cubed
  • 2 cups Chinese broccoli (I use only normal broccoli)
  • 225gr green beans
  • 1 Tbs. raw coconut nectar or maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup sliced radishes
  • 225gr snowpea shoots
  • 1 Tbs. sesame oil

I usually add zucchini, cauliflower and yellow peppers

Directions:

  • quinoa:
    • soak the quinoa overnight, and before cooking rinse well
    • cook the quinoa by following the instructions on the package - quinoa needs double the water.
  • vegetables:
    • heat the coconut oil in a large pan
    • add the onions and scallions and cook until the onions are translucent
    • add the garlic and cook for a minute
    • add the ginger, miso, carrots and the mushrooms and cook for a few minutes
    • stir in the tamari, red pepper flakes and the raw apple cider vinegar
    • add the rest of the vegetables (except for the snowpea shoots and radishes)
    • stir in the raw coconut nectar
    • add the radishes and snowpea shoots at the very end (cook for max 3 more min)
    • remove the pan from the heat and add the sesame oil, as well as add salt and pepper

I know that it looks like a lot of chopping, but once you have prepared the dish a few times then you get used to it. Enjoy and let me know how you liked it! Share also some of your favourite recipes.

Stay healthy,

Anna
