  • 1 cup quinoa, dry
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/4 cup edamame beans, shelled
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped or torn
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

Bring the quinoa and the 2 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Cover, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Turn the heat off and leave the covered saucepan on the burner for another 6 minutes. Fluff with a fork; add salt and pepper and set aside.

In a large sauté pan up to medium high heat, add the oil. Saute the red and green pepper, garlic, ginger, edamame with salt and pepper for 4-5 minutes. Add spinach and soy sauce. Stir in the quinoa and continue to heat until it is heated throughout, 2-3 minutes over medium heat. Garnish with green onions. Serve immediately.
