Veggie Quinoa Stir Fry

Easy, Savory and Delish!

My weekday afternoons are all kinds of busy, but some days are really crazy with everyone coming and going at different times. On those days, dinner needs to be extra quick & easy! So I made an old stand by … a Veggie Quinoa Stir Fry.

It’s simply any mix of vegetables you have on hand, sautéed in avocado oil, a touch of Toasted Sesame oil & salt, then mixed already cooked Quinoa, and topped with avocado, scallions & a handful of pistachios. That’s it! Super adaptable to tastes and really yummy!

Serve alone for a light meal or along side any additional protein.
