Spicy Quinoa Stir Fry

Melissa is such a fun blogger! She is so health conscious, and comes up with some of the best healthy recipes I’ve ever seen. I’ve had the opportunity to get to know her recently a little better, and I hope through this post, you can too. She’s inspired me to be healthier just by the looks of her amazing recipes. Hi there! I’m Melissa from Dancing For Food and I’m so excited and honored to be guest posting on Clarks Condensed today! I wanted to share one of my favorite go-to recipes with you, and after some browsing, settled on Spicy Quinoa Stir Fry.
Spicy Quinoa Stir Fry

This is one of those meals that you can easily make if you have a reasonably stocked pantry. All it takes is come cans of beans, corn, and diced tomatoes and onion and bell peppers from the fridge.

  • olive oil
  • handful chopped onions
  • chopped bell peppers
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • cooked quinoa
  • granulated garlic
  • chili powder
  • red pepper
  • salt and pepper

First, chop bell peppers. I don’t measure – just chop as many as you want!

Sauté chopped onions in olive oil. Add the bell peppers and a can of diced tomatoes with the liquid. As it heats, sprinkle in some granulated garlic, red pepper, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Let it heat for a bit. Next, add a mixture of pinto beans, black beans, kidney beans, and corn.

Add additional seasoning as desired. Add the cooked quinoa last. Let the whole mixture heat through and add more salt and pepper.
