For the quinoa:

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa rinsed and cooked according to package instructions

For the stir-fry:

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large carrots trimmed, halved, and sliced 1/4" thick on the bias
  • 8 ounces mushrooms stemmed and sliced
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 bell pepper cored and sliced (I used 1/2 red and 1/2 yellow)
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • 2 bunches bok choy chopped
  • 2 large green onions both white and green parts, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic sliced

For the dressing:

  • 4 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger*
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with teaspoon water
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts for garnish


  • Cook the quinoa according to package instructions and drain when finished cooking.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or wok. Add the carrot and mushrooms, and cook 5 minutes until the liquid has evaporated from the mushrooms and the carrots have softened. Add the broccoli, bell pepper, snap peas, bok choy, green onions, and garlic, and saute for about 2 minutes more.
  • While the vegetables cook, whisk the soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, and ginger in a small bowl. Add the cornstarch slurry and whisk to combine. Add the sauce to the pan of vegetables and cook until the sauce begins to boil and thicken, about 2-3 more minutes.
  • Serve the stir-fried vegetables over the quinoa and top with some chopped peanuts. Enjoy!


  • Use any of your favorite vegetables in this dish!
  • Substitute the quinoa for rice if desired.
