Pad Thai Quinoa Bowl

Pad Thai Quinoa Bowl
This recipe uses quinoa which is gluten-free, high in protein and fiber, and has a nice nutty flavor. But you can always substitute for either rice or noodles. Take out the chicken and add extra edamame and you have a great vegetarian meal instead. Or add shrimp if you like. A seriously good, versatile recipe!
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Main dish
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, divided
  • 1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
  • ¾ cup shredded cabbage
  • ½ cup edamame
  • ¼ cup diced broccoli stems
  • 2 carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
Thai peanut sauce:
  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter
  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ cup salted peanuts, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  1. Bring chicken broth and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Heat 1½ teaspoons coconut oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; stir until cooked through; about 5 minutes. Remove chicken from wok. Heat remaining 1½ teaspoons coconut oil. Add cabbage, edamame, broccoli, carrot, and green onions and saute until vegetables soften slightly, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Whisk eggs with sesame oil in a small bowl. Push vegetables to the sides of the wok to make a well in the center; pour eggs in and stir to scramble, about 3 minutes.
  4. Combine peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, chili garlic sauce, ginger, garlic, and sesame oil together in a small bowl. Pour Thai peanut sauce over vegetable and egg mixture in the wok.
  5. Return chicken to the wok and add quinoa; mix well to combine. Stir in chopped peanuts and cilantro and serve.
