Here’s what you’ll need

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 bunch kale, stems removed and finely chopped

Note: You can add any veggies you like - red peppers, broccoli, mushrooms or snap peas would all be delicious.

Let’s get cooking: 

  1. In a medium saucepan bring water to a boil. Add quinoa, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until water is absorbed, around 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, over medium high heat add coconut oil to a wok or large skillet. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook until fragrant.
  3. Add carrots, kale, edamame, and corn. Cook until carrots are tender and kale is wilted.
  4. Add cooked quinoa, tamari/soy sauce, and toasted sesame seed oil.
  5. Remove from heat and top with scallions and sesame seeds before serving.
