Servings: 4

Ingredients:
1 cup quinoa
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup frozen (thawed) chopped onion (can use fresh)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 each yellow, orange and green bell peppers, chopped
1 pound top sirloin (cut into thin strips)
1 cup low-sodium (preferably organic) beef broth
1 Tablespoon italian seasoning or dried basil
salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
parsley (optional)

Directions:
Place quinoa into a fine­mesh strainer (or line a regular strainer with cheesecloth). Rinse thoroughly with cool water for about 2 minutes. Rub and
swish the quinoa with your hand while rinsing. Drain. Add quinoa to medium saucepan and stir in 2 cups of water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a
rolling boil. Lower heat and cook, covered, for 15 minutes. Turn heat down to the lowest setting. Cover and cook for 15 minutes.
(While quinoa is cooking, chop 1 1/2 cups parsley). Remove the pot from heat and let stand for 5 more minutes, covered (no peeking).  
Remove lid and set aside.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a wok or large skillet on medium-high. Add onion cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until onions are soft. Add garlic, bell peppers and
roasted peppers and cook for 2 minutes, until onions are golden brown. Add beef and basil; cook for another 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add
broth and bring to a simmer over same heat. Simmer for 2 minutes, until steak is cooked through. Remove from heat and season with salt and
pepper. Serve beef mixture over quinoa.  Top with chopped parsley if desired.
Picky Eater/Non-Dieter Tips:  Serve them just steak and perhaps some raw pepper strips.

significantly easier.
