Quinoa stir fry with vegetables and chicken

quinoa is a superfood. It is gluten free . It is a high protein vegetable that is becoming very famous all over the world. Some replace rice with quinoa. it is high in omega 3 and lots of other nutrition & 9 different types of amino acids.

When you cook quinoa make sure you to wash well. I  normally do several times. After add stock or water. I find when you add stock water it tastes beautiful. It’s alright with water with a bit of butter. Anyway that’s my personal choice. Always add 11/2 cups of water for each cup of water.So it cooks light and fluffy. I  bring the quinoa to boil on high heat and then I reduce the heat to low cover and cook for fifteen to twenty minutes.

when I have time I always extra quinoa and leave in fridge for several days.  So you can quickly assemble the cooked quinoa as a salad when you are busy or can make quinoa omelette or even patties. I have done some videos and I will link them. You can cook a big amount of this dish and freeze in individual containers for future use. This recipe is really good for freezing.
