Super easy dinner idea loaded with veggies!


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 T toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 T fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 heads of broccoli, cut in florets (save the stems for juicing or homemade vegetable broth )
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced thin ( I used orange peppers, but any bell pepper will work)
  • 2 carrots, shredded or sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 cups edamame (If you avoid soy, you can use peas)
  • 1/4 cup mirin (see notes)
  • 2 1/2 T soy sauce OR Bragg's aminos OR coconut aminos


  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!


Recipe Notes

If you can't find mirin, you can make a substitute by mixing a little sugar with rice wine vinegar.
