Broccoli stir-fry

As every week begins, so does my resolve that "this week will be different, I will not eat fast food, I will not eat carbs....blah blah blah".  So here is a recipe that made me eat healthy for those on the go days, that never seemed to end.

Ingredients:
1 tbsp. oil
2 finely chopped cloves of garlic
1 tbsp. hot chili oil
4 oz. broccoli florets
2 tbsp. Bragg Liquid Amino (I used instead of soy sauce)
1 cup quinoa (cook in chicken broth)
1 egg cooked (scrambled)
1 cup of mushrooms
1/2 - 1 cup of water

Directions:
Heat oil in a large pan or wok.  Add garlic and broccoli.  After a few minutes, add 1/2 of water to help cook the broccoli (add more water if you want your broccoli to cook longer for a softer texture). 
Once broccoli has reached desired tenderness, add mushrooms, liquid amino and hot chili oil.
Cook quinoa per package directions.  Quinoa can be cooked the day before.
Once the mushrooms have cooked, add in quinoa and scrambled egg.

Serve immediately.

Stay hungry my friend.
