This recipe is DELICIOUS.
Not only can you have a healthy meal, the lemon juice can be added to the lime juice (ooops I accidentally juiced my limes) and orange juice…of course you need to add a shot of birthday tequila (thanks Shonna) and Cointreau…on ice (no salt). Diane’s Puckery Margarita with fresh EVERYTHING…

STIR “fry” MEDLEY

Barely any oils – just the vegan butter and after wrapping this up I’d say you only need half of the butter I used which makes it even healthier.
Red Quinoa, Brown Rice topped with: buttery lemon veggies saute onion, garlic, cherry tomato, green zucchini, kale and garbanzo beans. Added 1T basil (sweet) and 1/2t red chili peppers. 1T of fresh lemon juice and 2T vegan butter.
Cook ½ c red Quinoa
Cook 1 cup brown whole grain rice
½ yellow onion
2 garlic cloves (slice like dimes as thin as you can)
2 cups of kale
10 red cherry tomato, halved
1 cup sliced zucchini (like halved quarters)
½ can of Bushes Garbanzo beans
1T sweet basil
1 t red chili pepper flakes
2T fresh squeezed lemon (I made a margarita with the remainder…thinking of you Diane!)
Cook rice as directed. Set aside and keep warm.
Cook red quinoa as directed. Set aside and keep warm.
In a giant skillet (or wok if you’re lucky) place 2T of vegan butter. Let it get shimmery hot then add garlic. After about a minute add ALL of the remaining vegetables and beans. Stir in the basil and pepper. Lastly, add the lemon juice! Let simmer.
Plate a scoop of rice, scoop of quinoa and two scoops of the skillet delight.
This was a BIG hit and SO easy too. Even in my tiny kitchen.
