Quinoa and Veggies

I've been making a lot of raw foods lately, so it's been a while since I've made a quinoa stir-fry, and I figured I was over due for one. This was a quick dish for a busy week night.

I stir-fried shiitake mushrooms, asparagus, onion and garlic together in olive oil until tender, I then added kale (it's rare that kale makes it to the cooking stage in my house, because I've become so addicted to kale chips!) and chickpeas. And of course, I served the veggie mix over quinoa. This meal was super fast to make - it took only about 15 or 20 minutes - and is packed with protein, vitamins and minerals. So next time you think you don't have time to cook and are tempted to stop for fast food, stop yourself and consider making a quick stirfry with quinoa!
