Wash the quinoa thoroughly and cook it in 300 ml water for 5 minutes. Cover and set aside until all the water is absorbed. Add salt and pepper to taste and fresh coriander (optional).
Cook the green beans apart for about 15 minutes (if they are frozen than is no need to cook, they are already semi-cooked).
Heat the oil in a wok and add the vegetables. Stir fry for approx. 4-5 minutes, on high heat.
Add the ginger, coriander powder and garlic and stir fry for another 2-3 minutes. Finally, add the soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste.
