Dinner-Time with FaylinaMeir! 07/14/2012
So this video is FAR too long to recap everything said, however if you know your basic way around a kitchen you will not need the step by step instructions. If you do I would suggest watching the video. If you have any questions you can always ask me in a comment or on facebook.
Ingredients: (3 servings)
6 cups cooked quinoa
3 medium-large baked potatoes
15 ounces snap peas or stringless peas
1 pound brocooli
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 inch piece of minced ginger (about 1 tablespoon)
1/2 tablespoon grapeseed oil
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 1/2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 bunches or about 5 ounces green spring (welsh) onions
ultra low sodium soy sauce about 1-2 tablespoons
about 3 tablespoons water
chili sauce or ketchup (or anything else) as seasoning
you will also need a heat resistent spatula and a wok
Prep your brocolli by cutting the tips of the flourets off. Thinly slice the remaining stocks, they’re good food too! If your peas have strings you will need to string them. I buy the stringless versions but I still take the papery white bits off the ends. You will want to thinly slice your green onions. Slice your prebaked potatoes in smaller sized (bite-sized) pieces. Mince your garlic and ginger finely. If using preminced, make sure to wash well under warm/hot water to remove chemicals.
In a wok add your half tablespoon grapeseed oil, spread it around the pan. Turn the heat on high and add a small piece of brocolli into the pan. When it starts to sizzle you know its hot. Also now is a great time to add 1 1/2 tablespoons of sesame seeds, if using. When the seeds start to pop or the brocolli starts to sizzle, add the rest of your brocolli. Stir well to coat with oil. Then add your peas in. Stir fry this for 3 minutes. Then add your water, one tablespoon at a time while stiring. This helps to steam and cook through the vegetables, giving them better texture. At this point you’ll notice just how green they get, very pretty right?
After all the water is in , add your garlic and ginger as-well-as your green onions. Stir well and continue to stir fry for 5 or so minutes. At this point taste your brocolli for texture. If it is soft enough, add your soy sauce and sesame oil. Stir fry 1-2 more minutes and turn off the heat. Stir in gently your potato slices.
To serve this, place your quinoa on a plate and top with the vegetable potato mixture. Put on chili sauce or ketchup or any other desired sauce and enjoy! This ended up making 3 servings. Here is the nutritional information:
