Replace your white rice with a whole-grain that is packed with fiber, protein, and iron. This simple stir-fry is quick and tastes great.
Have it for dinner and bring left-overs the next day for lunch. Refrigerated, quinoa stays fresh for up to 5 days! Serve it as a side or add chicken, fish, or tofu to make it a main dish.
