  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and let cook for a couple of minutes. Stir in pepper and zucchini. Stir fry for 2 minutes, then add cabbage, garlic, and ginger. Cook for a few more minutes until the vegetables are softened but still have some crunch.
  2. Stir in cooked lentils and quinoa. Pour in the teriyaki sauce. Cook, stirring constantly until everything is warmed through.
  3. Stir in the chopped herbs. Divide into bowls and optionally drizzle with more teriyaki sauce. Garnish with chopped peanuts and other optional ingredients. Serve immediately.
