Black Bean Quinoa Stir-fry

  
I’m obsessed with making stir-fry’s! They’re my go to meal whenever I’m not sure what I’m craving. They’re so easy because you just throw whatever you have in the fridge together and it always works! Today I switched it up completely but putting it over quinoa instead of rice! This added much more nutrients including protein (essential to vegans/vegetarians)! Try this easy and delicious meal and let me know how you like it!
