(makes more than enough to use for this recipe)
1. Cook quinoa according to package directions. (We like cooking it in chicken broth so it cuts the bitter flavor. Check out our tips on cooking quinoa –> HERE!)
2. To make teriyaki sauce, put all ingredients (except the cornstarch & water) in a small pan over medium heat. Heat until boiling. Mix water & cornstarch together. Once mixture is boiling on the stove, add the cornstarch & water mixture. Whisk until it heats through and thickens.
3. While cooking quinoa, get stir-fry pan or skillet very hot over medium high heat for about 1 minute, then add 1 Tbsp. of avocado oil or coconut oil. Add all the vegetables you would like for your bowl. Stir constantly for 3-5 minutes or until vegetables are tender crisp (not overly cooked so they are soggy! :). Add edamame to heat through for another minute or so. If needed, add a couple tablespoons of water to help steam/cook the veggies.
4. To assemble the bowls, put quinoa in bottom & drizzle lightly with teriyaki sauce. Then add stir-fried vegetables, top with a little more teriyaki sauce. Don’t over do it on the sauce or it will be too salty! You might have extra sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds, cashews & green onions! Enjoy!
