Spaghetti Squash Boca Burger Quinoa Stir Fry

Leave a comment

Apparently we’re Boca Burger crazy lately.  Mat made Boca Burger Enchiladas the other day, and now we’re using them to make a stir fry with spaghetti squash.  I thought last night’s spaghetti squash with nutritional yeast would last longer than it did (we only used half of the squash – it doesn’t quite last for 2 people for 2 nights).  Rather than try to freeze the other squash half, we’re inventing tonight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spaghetti Squash Boca Burger Quinoa Stir Fry

Ingredients:

olive oil

1/4 yellow onion, diced

1 clove shallot, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

crushed red pepper (to taste)

2 Boca Burgers, cooked and cut into bite size pieces

1/2 package frozen spinach, drained

2 cups cooked quinoa

1/3 of half a roasted spaghetti squash

6 eggs, lightly whisked

1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed

smoked paprika and cayenne pepper

salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Saute onion, shallot, garlic, and crushed red pepper in olive oil until translucent and fragrant.
  2. Add Boca Burgers and sauté for about 5 minutes
  3. Add spinach and sauté 5 minutes more.
  4. Add quinoa, spaghetti squash, eggs and pinto beans and cook through.  Season with smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper.

A delicious, protein-packed meal!

We added soy sauce to it when we ate it which worked nicely since it was an egg stir fry.  I can’t believe how much protein is probably in it – eggs, Boca Burgers, quinoa, and beans?  Heck yes!

I’m craving chocolate.  I’ve been craving it all day actually.  And yesterday.  I think it’s because I haven’t slept quite enough lately and whenever that happens I crave sugary food.  It’s that whole appetite hormone thing with grehlin and leptin and all that.  I can’t remember which hormone is which, but I’m pretty sure those are the names.  (Maybe I should find my nutrition book and look that up…)

The rest of the night is all about the tv.  We haven’t sat and watched tv since Friday and it’s been a busy and long few days since then.  Thank goodness it’s barely 8:00!
