KISS: Cauliflower Stirfry and Quinoa

cauliflower stirfry

Another quick, delicious, and healthy meal idea.  And if you like participating in “Meatless Monday”, this is the perfect recipe to try.  

Throwing veggies in a sizzling wok with a few spices and seasoning, and you can’t go wrong.  You can serve this over rice if you wish.  I choose quinoa because I prefer it over rice, and it’s a great vegetarian protein source.

Stirfry is one my favorite go-to dinner ideas when I’m in a time crunch and craving a plethora of veggies.  You can really throw in whatever vegetables you have on hand.  I just happened to have a head of cauliflower that needed to be used, but I wasn’t in the mood to go through the process of making cauli mash or pizza.  So, instead . . . . . stirfry to the rescue!

    Okra is on this list. I LOVE okra. So, I have to ask, where the heck can you find fresh okra? I have a hard time finding fresh okra — even in the summer.

    I once made cauliflower hummus, it would have been really good except that I got way too carried away with the garlic so it was a little overpowering! I was too embarrassed to eat it at work hahah!
