Vegetable Beef Quinoa Stir-fry

Quinoa! I LOVE this stuff! It is a great alternative to rice and it is very filling. So, to talk a little about Quinoa, most people think it’s a grain but if you do your research, its actually a seed. It contains all nine amino acids, wow! In my opinion, you should definitely always have Quinoa in your pantry.

So, here is one of my many recipes containing Quinoa.


1 cup of Quinoa
1 pack of organic beef (cut into strips)
1 pack of asparagus
1 bunch of broccoli
1 pack of mushrooms
1/2 of an onion

Sesame Oil
Soy sauce
Ginger powder

In a large wok or if you don’t have a wok, you can use a large frying pan, place your cut up beef, mushrooms, and onion inside and cook until beef is done and mushrooms are tender. Medium heat.

Next, pour a little soy sauce into your pot and let it simmer. Add the ginger powder, salt and pepper.

Cut up your asparagus into 2 inch pieces and add to wok. Cut up your broccoli and add to wok.

In a separate pot, cook your quinoa according to the specific direction on your package. I personally use Bob’s Red Mill Quinoa.

While you are waiting on your quinoa to cook, add a little sesame oil to your wok and let the broccoli and asparagus steam, putting the lid on.

When your Quinoa is finished, add it to your wok. Put a little more sesame oil and soy sauce in and stir at a medium high heat. Once you stir-fry for a little while, add your siracha and more spices if needed.

Thank you for taking this journey with a housewife!
