Staple Shuffle: Quinoa Stir Fry

Ok, I am going to be honest here.  Some of the ingredients are not my usual staples, BUT for some people, they might be the usual suspects ;)

Key Players

  • Chicken
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • onion
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • Jalapeno (optional)
  • Cooked Quinoa
  • Broccoli & Carrot Slaw
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Soy sauce (low sodium)
  • Chili garlic sauce
  • 1 egg

Chop all the veggies, garlic and chicken.  Take of the "rib" (inside) of jalapeno and mince (finely chop) the jalapeno

Dump all of the veggies, including snow peas, in a hot skillet with a tbs of olive oil.  Wait to add chicken.
Add in as much ginger as you like!  I added 2 tsp.

A couple minutes later, add in 1 1/2 tsp chili garlic sauce - careful, it's hot!

Add in chicken and 2 tbs of soy sauce (1 if it is kid-friendly)

Move everything to one side of the pan and add in cooked quinoa and 1 egg.  Mix the egg in well and stir it all together.

Make it pretty and beware:  It's REALLY good.  Hard to only have 1 serving.
