Have you ever tried fermented black garlic? I saw some when I was at Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago,and I just had to try it. I’m glad I did! It’s mild and a little bit sweet and adds a note of wtf-is-this-awesomeness to a humble stir-fry.

img 4001 - Black Garlic Quinoa Stir-FryI made this the other night when faced with a craving for a grain & veggie /vehicle-for-poached-egg dinner. I made a large amount so I would have leftovers for the next day, but you can definitely make a smaller amount if preferred.

Serves 2 (or 1, twice)

Ingredients: 

  • ~2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 head black garlic, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1 10-oz package shredded brussels sprouts
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce (optional)
  • salt & pepper to taste, if desired
  • ~1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup roasted golden beets
  • 2 poached eggs
  • tahini, for drizzle (optional)

Directions: 

  1. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add garlic and cook a few minutes until fragrant.
  3. Add shredded brussels sprouts and cook until wilted and hot. Add soy sauce and salt/pepper if using.
  4. Add quinoa and beets. Cook until flavors are well-blended.
