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, that’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, here’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!!!!
