Mix Veggies with Sausage served with Quinoa

Generally on weekdays, we try to eat healthy and save all the binging for the weekends :)  This is one of the healthy, quick and easy and tasty recipes for a weekday dinner/lunch.

  • Asparagus - 1 pound - Cut into bite size pieces
  • Zucchini - 2 medium - Cut into bite size pieces
  • Carrots - 2 medium - Cut into bite size pieces
  • Onion - 1 small - Chopped fine
  • Chicken/Vegetable stock - 2 cups
  • Sausage - 2 number - Cut into bite size pieces (I used Italian hot chicken sausage) - This is optional if you want to keep it vegetarian
  • Olive Oil - 1 table spoon
  • Soy sauce - 2 table spoon
  • Garlic powder - 1 tea spoon
  • Ginger powder - 1 tea spoon
  • Italian seasoning - 1 table spoon
  • Salt - 1 table spoon (Add per taste. Soy sauce contains salt also) 
  • Pepper - 1 tea spoon (Crushed)
  • Corn flour - 1 table spoon (add this to 1/2 cup of water and mix well)
  • Quinoa - 2 cups Cooked (to serve it with)

To a pan on medium heat, add chopped Onions.  Saute till translucent.  Add sausage and stir fry for 5 minutes (omit this step if you are keeping it vegetarian).  Add all the other vegetables and stir fry for 5 more minutes.  Add all the other ingredients except the corn flour and let cook covered till the vegetables and sausage is cooked. Open the lid and add the corn flour mixed with water.  Let cook for another 2-3 minutes till the stock thickens.  Serve it hot with Quinoa, Brown or white rice.
