VIEW WEEKLY MENUS

Classic stir-fry is often made in a wok–a deep metal skillet that distributes high heat evenly. If you happen to have one, use it here, but if not, a large skillet will also create a beautiful stir-fry. The fermented black beans give the dish a subtle umami flavor, making your meal even more savory.

Combine the quinoa, 1¼ cups water, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until all the water is absorbed and the grains begin to burst, about 12 to 15 minutes. In a medium bowl, whisk together the tamari, cornstarch, rice wine, and ½ cup water.
