Turkey Quinoa Stir Fry

Submitted by: STARLASUE

Introduction

Quick meal to make. Low calorie, high protein, high fiber.

TIPS: Adjust the ginger and garlic to taste. I use Rotisserie turkey or chicken breast to make preparation quicker. Also, you could buy a package of 'cole slaw' mix for the cabbage. Brown rice can be substituted for quinoa. (Quinoa cooks faster and gives it a great taste plus it is high in fiber and protein). Avoid white rice though as you lose the benefits of the whole grain.

You can also add shredded carrots, peas, snow peas, water chestnut, or other veggies that you enjoy in stir-fry but you don't need heavy oils or soy sauce.
