Quinoa Stir-Fry with Sauerkraut

Print

A stir-fry quinoa bowl with fermented cabbage is a nourishing alternative for those days you´re craving for asian takeout.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

While ginger is renown for its use of 'stomach problems' (e.g. motion sickness, morning sickness, colic, upset stomach, gas, nausea and/or diarrhea), in the Asian culinary world, fresh, dried or ground ginger are widely used. Every 100 grams of ginger contains 80 calories, with no cholesterol and it contains some essential vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, manganese, copper, magnesium, pyridoxine and pantothenic acid. As a complete protein, it contains all nine essential amino acids, and it's one of the most protein packed foods. It also has iron, magnesium and almost twice as much fiber as other grains.
