Quinoa Vegetable Stir Fry

Stir fries are a great way to use up odds and ends in the fridge.  This Quinoa Vegetable Stir Fry comes together very quickly.  I always keep some cooked grains or quinoa in the fridge to add to meals like this.  This quinoa stir fry recipe is very versatile.  Just use it as a base to add whatever veggies you like.  I happened to have a couple orange peppers sitting around, so that was my starting point.  I also love broccoli in my stir fries, so I made sure to add it.

Super easy dinner idea loaded with veggies!



  1. In small pot , add the quinoa and the water. Bring to a boil, then cover, turn down the heat, and simmer until all the water is absorbed. It should take about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large saute pan , add the oil, onions, garlic and ginger. Cook on medium heat until the onions look a little translucent. About 5-6 minutes.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients, stir and cover. Cook for about 5-6 more minutes. Stir every so often though. When the broccoli has softened a bit, you know it's done.
  4. Serve immediately or refrigerate for later. This should last a week in the fridge. Enjoy!

  1. I really enjoy your recipes and thank you for them! My husband is also dairy free, and he cannot eat raw veggies/fruits due to ulcerative colitis. Cooking can be a challenge, but so grateful for your recipes that address his gluten intolerance. Are you able to list the calories, grams of protein etc., for your recipes?
    1. Thanks Joann! I don't include the nutrition facts because they would never be 100% accurate. I am not a nutritionist and I don't weigh out the food. I would hate to be wrong when it came to a diabetic. Sorry if that is an inconvenience. However, my recipes are compatible with My Fitness Pal, so you can upload them to get an estimate. I hope that helps! :)
  2. Hi, This looks delicious and simple (my two main requirements for recipes :) ). I will most likely add in some grilled radicchio for that pop of color and the many superfood benefits, but otherwise I will leave the recipe as-is. Thank you for sharing!
