1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed thoroughly
1 tbsp. chopped garlic
6 cups frozen stir-fry veggies
4 cups broccoli florets
1/2 cup all-natural thick teriyaki marinade or sauce (like the kind by Annie Chun’s)
In a medium pot, combine quinoa, 1/2 tbsp. garlic, and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to low. Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes, or until water has been absorbed and quinoa is fully cooked. Transfer to a large bowl, and cover to keep warm.
Bring a very large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add remaining 1/2 tbsp. garlic, stir-fry veggies, broccoli, and 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook until veggies have mostly softened, 6 – 8 minutes.
Uncover, and cook and stir until excess liquid has evaporated and veggies are fully softened, about 2 minutes.
Add teriyaki sauce and cooked quinoa and mix well. Cook and stir until hot, about 1 minute. Serve up and enjoy!
