Stir Fried Vegetables With Quinoa Recipe

Stir Fried Vegetables With Quinoa

This Stir Fried Vegetables With Quinoa Recipe is packed with flavour, crunch and goodness. I don't know about you but I love a healthy stir fry.

And plant- based stir fries give you the opportunity to bump up your veggie intake without compromising on taste. It's super important to get lots of plant food into your diet.

The miso paste, tahini, lemon juice and herbs add a beautifully deep flavour to this dish.

Miso paste is a great fermented food to include as an ingredient in the right meals. It's a probiotic food and fabulous for your gut.

You can create your own vegetable combination based on what you fancy, have in stock, or want to use up. It doesn't take long to knock up this delicious-tasting meal whether you cook the quinoa fresh, or use leftovers.

You can learn more about quinoa in my 4 Tasty Ways With Quinoa blog.
