LUNCHBOX IDEAS :: White Bean Cauliflower Stir-Fry

This stir-fry does not contain egg, dairy or gluten.

Happy Monday!  Did you have to navigate excessive heat over the weekend?  We are up in Maine for the week and the thermometer crept up past 95 F over here.  The humidity was insane but we did get some relief at the beach.  Our weekend had a grand finale with a power outage that affected the whole town.  High temperatures and humidity with no power are a bad combination with young kids but we made the best of it.  

It's #meatlessmonday and I wanted to share this recipe that I had in my Insta stories a couple of weeks ago.  I'm just filling in the blanks while I have a few minutes of quiet.

All ingredients are from Trader Joe's 

4 servings
1 bag of organic rainbow cauliflower
1 cup cooked white quinoa
1 can white kidney beans
3 green onions 
olive oil

Wash the green onions and slice.  Cook the quinoa and set aside to cool.  Saute the green onions in a little bit of olive oil.  Add the rinsed white beans.  Add the cauliflower and cook for a few minutes.  Don't overcook the cauliflower.  Season with salt and add 1 tsp ginger.  Mix in 1 cup of cooked quinoa.  Combine together.

Voila!  This stir-fry is packed with plant proteins, vitamins and minerals.  I also love all the colors from the cauliflower.  The ginger helps make it anti-inflammatory too.  Did you know that cauliflower is high in fiber and antioxidants?  It's definitely a good addition to your diet.  

Enjoy this super easy and flavorful stir-fry!  Take a photo and share on Instagram using #peoniesandalatte to show us your creations.
