Something Tastey

Those of you who know me, know I am a produce nut. There is nothing I love more than a dinner that consists of 95% veggies, 5% other things. I love my vegetables! So, last night my husband and I were in the kitchen pondering on what to make for dinner. (This is a regular occurrence for the two of us). And I myself, was craving a hearty stir fry packed full of various veggies, but then realized we didn't have any. I was about ready to run to the store and grab all I needed. That was until, I opened the pantry and realized we had rows upon rows of veggies! Needless to say, I ended up using 100% THRIVE ingredients to make my delicious new Veggie Quinoa Bowl. And I did in fact, make an entire meal in merely 15 minutes. Jackson devoured about 4 bowls of this meal, so I decided it was definitely a  hit for us and want to share it with you!! So, here is my delicious new recipe. There are no particular measurements for this recipe, you get to add however much of whatever you want to  your bowl. You can add mushrooms, peas, chicken, or anything else you would like!

First, you want to grab all of the cans you are going to need. (Not pictured THRIVE freeze-dried green onions, and onions)
Next, bring 1 1/2 cups of water to a boil  then add 1 cup of THRIVE quinoa. Let simmer for about 13 minutes or until light and fluffy. As that is happening, you are going to start bringing those veggies back to life! Do this by combining the freeze-dried bell pepper, zucchini, and broccoli in a bowl, and covering them with water for about 3-5 minutes like so. (Both types of onions reconstitute in the same way.)

At the same time as this step, combine the freeze-dried corn, and carrots in a pot of boiling water for about 3-5 minutes as well.

Now that everything is re-hydrated, we are ready for the final step. Saute THRIVE onion and green onion in a little bit of olive oil until golden brown. Then add the remaining veggies into the pot along with the cooked quinoa. Crack a little bit of salt and pepper on there, add a splash of your favorite teriyaki or soy sauce, and you're ready to eat! I personally added Spicy Miso Teriyaki Sauce and Kikomon's Low-Sodium Soy Sauce.

*For those protein lovers, I recommend adding either THRIVE freeze-dried chicken into your bowl, or cooking a couple of eggs to throw in there.

YUM! I will definitely be making this simple dish again.
