Chinese quinoa stir fry with baby corn

Today I got up with craving of eating something very spicy. I wanted to make something healthy and fast. I had some already cooked quinoa saved from yesterday's lemon quinoa . So I thought of making stir fried quinoa with baby corn. I hope you will give it a try and you can really custom make per your taste :).

Ingredients :
2 cupped cooked quinoa
1 medium sized onion, chopped lengthwise
2 green onions, separately chop green and white portions
1 zucchini , chop diagonally
Celery , 1 cup finely chopped
Brocllie florets,1 cup
Green beans , finely chopped , 1 cup
Carrots , 1 cup shredded
Baby corn, 1 cup
Ginger , 2 tsp finely chopped
Garlic , 2 tsp finely chopped
Green chilies per taste
Soy sauce, 1 tsp
Vinegar, 1 tsp
Salt per taste
Black pepper , 1 tsp
Oil, 2 tsp
Chili hot sauce (optional)

Prepare all vegetables. Keep aside
Heat oil in a pan , add onion and stir fry
Once turned brown add ginger, garlic, green chili, white portion of green onions.
Stir fry for 3-4 minutes , add celery and sauté , after 2 minutes add rest of all vegetables except onion green.
Stir fry until vegetables get cooked. Then add soy sauce, black pepper , vinegar, chili sauce If adding, mix thoroughly with vegetables.

Then add cooked quinoa , salt. Remember sauces has salt already so be cautious with salt.

Cook for 3-4 min, stirring occasionally. Then add spring onion green, serve hot with hot sauce!

I add roasted peanuts once sauces are added it really taste great and gives a Kung fu style taste :).
