Asian Quinoa Stir-Fry

I made this Asian Quinoa Stir-Fry tonight for dinner for myself and my sister from the January 2015 edition of the BBC Good Food magazine. Asian Quinoa Stir Fry

It’s a vegan-friendly, wheat-free recipe and came in at 7pp on the Weight Watchers Plan.

It was simple to prepare, really tasty and felt incredibly healthy to eat.  The only change I’d make if cooking it again would be that I’d use less liquid than it states in the recipe as mine turned out quite soupy.
