  2. Toss into a pan of Grapeseed or Olive Oil on Medium
  3. Toss in Onions & (spinach is optional)
  4. Toss in Diced Mushrooms (optional)
  5. Season to taste with Garlic, parsley, hot pepper flakes, sea salt

Now for the Scoop! This was absolutely delicious. Call me bias after a quick 3 mile run but this went down super easy and was very pleasant to eat. Not only is this a vegan friendly dish but it was a hit with my 7 year old as well. Quinoa provides a nutty grain taste so it works very well with stir fry. Quinoa as a complete protein so consider to start using this in place of whole grain brown rice!
