Recipe

Stir-fries are one the easiest weeknight dishes in my opinion and this simple Asian and quinoa stir-fry with Chinese 5 spice is a great twist on a traditional Asian stir-fry. The Chinese 5 spice adds a lot of nuanced flavor with it's unique spice combination of cloves, cinnamon, fennel, star anise, and peppercorns. I recommend adding it little by little since it can vary in strength and while some people love it, others just like it as a delicate background flavor.
