Quinoa+Sweetcorn with Chicken, Shrimp, Broccoli Stir-fry (a million sighs)

Quinoa+Sweetcorn with Chicken, Shrimp, Broccoli Stir-fry (a million sighs)


Remember the not-everytime-jollof-rice goal i set in January, here's me living it out! My friends gave me this recipe a year ago and I became the hugest Quinoa fan out there. It's loaded with so many Superfoods it's almost illegal.

What you need:

For the Quinoa

1 cup Quinoa (feeds 3)

1 tin of Sweetcorn

For the Stir-fry

3 tbs of olive oil

1 pound of cooked chicken (cut into medium strips)

1 medium onion (sliced)

1 clove of garlic (grated)

1 red bell pepper (sliced longitudinally)

1 green bell pepper (sliced longitudinally)

2 Scotch bonnets (optional, I use 3!)

4 cups of broccoli florets

1 cup of mushrooms

3 sticks of spring onions (chopped)

A pair of bouillon cubes

1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp ground pepper/Cayenne pepper 

Salt to taste


Cook Quinoa according to directions on box, once cooked, turn off burner and add drained Sweetcorn.


Sauté the onions and crushed garlic in the olive oil

 Once the onions are translucent, add the other vegetables

Add your spices and stir

Add your chicken (and shrimp)

 Stir-fry for about 4 minutes

 Serve with your steamy quinoa-sweetcorn and enjoy! 

Let me know if you try it out! 


Thank you for the recipe Demi and Ife, the original #fitfam!
