Stir-frys are some of the simplest dishes out their. You just saute a few random ingredients, and ta-da. You got a dish of totally different flavors that have melded together to create awesomeness. In this case, cashews, pineapples, edamame, and quinoa.
The Pineapple-Cashew-Quinoa Stir-Fry(pg. 175-176) is one of my favorites so far. Its very easy to make and takes maybe an hour and a half but most of that is just cooling the quinoa that you cooked in pineapple juice. But prep that the night before and you should be good to go!
It says to use fresh pineapple and a cup of pineapple juice so i bought a can of it and just used the juice from that and replaced the fresh. I know i was probably missing that firmer texture, but i don’t think the flavor was compromised. I also waisted less pineapple!
Now the flavors in this dish are not at all what i would have thought to put together. Mint, garlic, ginger, basil, and red chile? But somehow it works. So this dish is a definite keeper. But maybe that’s just because i like cashews and edamame.
What are your favorite stir-fry ingredients?
