Broccoli, Asparagus and Quinoa Stir Fry

broccoli-asparagus-and-quinoa-stir-fry-02

This vegan dish is high in protein without any animal fat what so ever which can be difficult to do. Many vegan dishes are full of carbs with the beans, lentils and legumes but surprisingly vegetables do have a decent amount of protein. Low in cholesterol. vitamin C, high in calcium and Omega-3 fatty acids.

This dish can easily be prepared ahead of time. Chop all the veggies and cook the quinoa the night before and all you will have to do the next day is fry it up and enjoy. It would also make a lovely chilled salad. Once the recipe has been cooked, place in the refrigerator for a few hours. Top the salad with lime and cilantro just prior to serving.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
