Chinese Snap Pea Quinoa

My favorite source of grain is quinoa. I think quinoa is the cutest little grain. Whenever we are have quinoa I say "yeah, we're having ringlets." That's what quinoa looks like to me, little ringlets! Quinoa is a nutrient packed grain. It's a great source of protein, fiber, magnesium, manganese, potassium, iron, phosphorus, folate, and copper to name a few. This quinoa dish is Chinese. With it's secret ingredient, liquid aminos all purpose seasoning. It's a natural soy sauce. Enjoy this homemade and healthy Chinese dish!

Sauté or steam veggies in a separate pan until tender. 

3. When quinoa is done add the cooked veggies, liquid aminos,
