More About This Recipe
  • So I've been eating a lot of cheese. Like, A LOT OF CHEESE. Amounts that I don't care to share, discuss or reveal. But it's not of this world. My husband, on the other hand, isn't a cheese eater. I. KNOW. Well, the disgusting truth and reality hit me yesterday and I knew I needed to take a break from it. The cheese, not the husband. Actually... So, I made a super simple quinoa and vegetable stir fry with eggy strips and scallions and soy sauce – and all was well in the world again. Even got a high-five from le hubs. Add sriracha sauce because that's the stuff life is made of. Enjoy!
