    * Teriyaki Sauce 2 Tb
    * Green Beans (snap), 10 beans (4" long)
    * Broccoli, fresh, 3/4 cup, chopped
    * Cabbage, red, fresh, 1/2 cup, chopped
    * Garlic, 2 1/2 cloves minced
    * Mushrooms, fresh, 2/3 c sliced
    * Onions, raw, 1/2 c sliced
    * Green Peppers 1/2 c chopped
    * Summer squash, 1/2 cup, chopped
    * Zucchini, 1/2 c sliced
    * Red peppers 1/2 c sliced
    * Baby Carrots, raw, 10 large
    * Sunflower Seeds, without salt, 1 Tb
    * Almonds, 1 Tb sliced

    * Soy Sauce reduced sodium 1 Tb

Directions

1. Begin by making a steamer (if you have a steamer already, ignore this direction). Rather than buy all the products necessary for steaming vegetables, place a pot of water on the stove, then a colander, then the lid for the pot inside the colander. Boil the water. Instant steamer. :)
2. Keep the water at a rolling boil and you can steam all the vegetables. Begin with the hardest (carrots) and every two minutes add the next "Softest" (I usually go carrots, beans, peppers, squashes, broccoli, onions, cabbage, mushrooms).
3. Once you started steaming the carrots, making the quinoa according to package directions. It takes 12 minutes. Set aside.
4. While quinoa and veggies are cooking, put 2 Tb sesame oil in a skillet. Add beef to brown. When both sides are browned, add garlic, stir until seasoned. Flavor with salt and pepper.
5. Add almonds and seeds. Stir until softened.
6. When vegetables are done, transfer them to the skillet. Add Teriyake and Soy sauce. Stir until coated.
7. Serve over the quinoa. Enjoy!
