This recipe will satisfy a Chinese take out craving, and definitely won’t leave you feeling bloated and regretful!

I found all the ingredients for this recipe at my local Trader Joe’s. If you don’t have one by you, I feel sorry for you because it is an AMAZING store.

You will need a large saute pan-5 qt pot-micro plane grater and a big appetite 😉

serves 3-4

  • 1 lb raw/peeled wild shrimp
  • 2 cups dry organic red quinoa
  • 1 lb mixed veggie stir fry package (see picture)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp general tso’s sauce
  • 3 tbsp unrefined coconut oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil


  1. In your large saute pan, melt the coconut oil on low heat
  2. mince garlic cloves and grate your fresh ginger
  3. add to your melted coconut oil and stir, begin to bring heat up to medium
  4. toss in your veggies , toasted sesame oil and general tso’s sauce. Cover and stir occasionally
  5. Cook your two cups of quinoa as directed on your package. Mine took about 15-20 mins to cook
  6. When veggies are tender, add in your shrimp and cook until they are pink

Serve over  red quinoa and be sure to scoop up some of the sauce in the pan 😉
