Stir-Fry Vegetables With Quinoa Recipe

A Reader Gives Up Rice For Quinoa

The Give It Up community challenge may be officially over, but it's making a lasting impact for some FitSugar readers; Lauren is giving up rice for quinoa!

Yesterday, I read an article in the New York Times about making a vegetarian stir-fry with quinoa replacing the rice. It just so happens I was planning on a veggie stir fry for dinner and also had a little bit of red quinoa already in my pantry. The stir-fry I made was pretty basic with onions, carrots, celery, broccoli, yellow squash, bell pepper, soy beans and bok choy (I had a lot of veggies that needed to be used)! So while I cooked up the veggies, I prepared the red quinoa which takes less time than brown rice. The dinner was delicious and simple, not only does the quinoa add a nutty texture but also great crunchy texture too. I think quinoa stir-fry in my house will become a staple! Have you ever replaced rice with quinoa?
