Finally sharing the One Pan Wonder I’ve been loving the last few weeks!
This Mediterranean Quinoa Stir Fry has literally become a mainstay in my kitchen the past 5 weeks.
It is my personal go to dish when I need a quick dinner and I am flying solo (ie husband at work, kids at camp or out with friends, or they are all grilling meat and I want something hearty for myself).
And I’ve doubled and tripled the quantity when others are home and want to share it alongside grilled chicken or some other protein of choice.
Personally, I just like a big bowl of it as is!
Let’s get to the details.
It is super simple. Just 6 main ingredients –cooked quinoa, canned chickpeas, cherry or grape tomatoes, fresh baby spinach, kalamata or black olives and feta.
And it’s seasoned with nothing more than olive oil, kosher salt and fresh lemon juice.
If you’ve followed me a while, you know these are some of my favorite flavors and this stir fry does not disappoint!
And it comes together really quickly– as in 15 minutes beginning to end! And all you need is one pan!
Of note, one of the reasons this dish works so for our family is that we almost always have cooked quinoa in the refrigerator so all the ingredients are pantry staples for us.
If you don’t have quinoa at the ready, you will have to make some but that takes 20 mins total.
Back to the stir fry.
First, you saute the chickpeas with just a little olive oil and salt. The you add the tomatoes and saute a few minutes. Then you add the spinach for a few minutes while it wilts. Then you add in the cooked quinoa and olives. Remove from heat, stir in the feta and drizzle with fresh lemon juice.
Super quick and it is such a flavorful and cozy dish!
Hope you love it as much as we do!
