Quinoa Fried Rice

A Healthy take on a Chinese food classic!

Quinoa Fried Rice
(Serves 1)
  • 1 serving cooked quinoa
  • 1/3 cup frozen mixed veggies, steamed (peas,carrot,corn,green beans,)
  • red bell pepper, sliced or chopped (optional)
  • 1-2 whole eggs, or whites if you like
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • For optional flavor: Add a little Organic Tamari Soy Sauce or Bragg's Liquid Aminos (lower sodium option) for a traditional flavor.
  1. Heat oil over medium in a pan.
  2. Add veggies, and saute for a couple minutes.
  3. Add quinoa and stir. 
  4. Crack the eggs on top. Slightly break up the yolk. Let them sit for a couple minutes to cook, before you stir the whole thing, so they don't make the quinoa soggy. Once they start to cook and look a little like scrambled egg, break them up and stir with quinoa and veggies.
  5. Add your soy sauce or prefferred spices.
  6. Remove from heat and enjoy!
This recipe can be made in a large batch and have for leftovers! I love this as a quick dinner or side for Asian chicken dishes. :)
