Triple Power Protein Breakfast
I always feel better when I eat a hot cooked breakfast so this morning I decided to make a stir fry with the left-over quinoa in the fridge. Into the pan went onions, red and green peppers, and half a left-over Japanese eggplant which fried for a few minutes in soy sauce. Then I added the triple protein element - cubed tofu, black beans and quinoa with a little vegetable stock. I ended up throwing in a few spices to add a little more flavour but as usual I used too much turmeric which made the dish slightly bitter. It was still very tasty and a very good start to the day accompanied by a fresh fruite smoothie!
