Teriyaki Quinoa

My fav way to eat QUINOA!!!! Try this with a nice big side salad or on it’s own with a ton of fresh veggies! My family loves it & every time we make it, it turns out slightly different (you can get so creative with the ingredients!)

Teriyaki Quinoa

#1 Cook 1 cup dry Quinoa ~ cook according to package directions. (or use leftovers, thatโ€™s what I do)

#2 In a saucepan heat 4 large cloves of garlic and 1TBsp of grated fresh ginger (or more, I like more)

#3Once heated through and fragrant, add Quinoa and stir. (if this is your only item for the meal, add things like grated carrots, celery, minced peppers, minced broccoli, hereโ€™s your chance to get creative!) *you’ll notice I only have carrots in mine, it’s because sadly, I only had carrots at home!

#4 add in 3-4 TBsp Tamari (or regular soy sauce), 2TBsp Maple Syrup, 1/2 lemon squeezed. Stir well. Keep at low heat.

#5 Add to plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds and cut green onions.

ENJOY!!!!
