Prepared Butterfly Pea Quinoa
1. Follow package instructions to cook the quinoa and before simmering, mix in supercolors.
2. Place a large frying pan or wok on medium heat. Once hot, add sesame oil and spread it around evenly. Add garlic and chili flakes and sauté until the garlic starts to turn brown.
3. Add ginger and vegetables and cook for 5-7 minutes until the veggies start to soften. Add Tamari, paprika and salt and cook until the veggies are cooked through. Add butterfly pea quinoa, mix well and cook for 1-2 minutes until the quinoa absorbs any remaining Tamari. Serve hot.
