1/2 bunch broccolini

1/2 green capsicum

Method:

  1. Prepare the veggies. Slice the capsicum into thin strips and trim and halve the broccolini and snow peas.
  2. Prepare the quinoa as per the packet instructions and set aside once cooked.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a medium skillet pan over medium heat and add the oil, ginger and soy sauce. Once heated through, add the beef and cook for 3-5 minutes each side to ensure the beef is cooked evenly. Remove from the heat and set aside.  Once cooled, slice into strips.
  4. To a medium bowl add 1 tbsp of water and the snow peas and broccolini. Microwave on high for 1 minute.
  5. Build the bowl by starting with a bed of quinoa, followed by the remaining ingredients. Serve with coriander.
