How To Make Quinoa Fried Rice

Fried-Quinoa

When we heard the name Fried Quinoa, we automatically pictured a cluster of quinoa coated in corndog batter and thrown in a boiling hot deep fryer. Don’t blame us, that’s just the kind recipes we’re used to. So it was awesome to see Clean Eats come up with a quinoa recipe that was NOTHING like how we described.

Rather, it’s a healthier take on fried rice.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Olive oil, onions, carrots, green peas, ginger, garlic, quinoa, 3 eggs, soy sauce and green onions and sesame seeds for garnish.

What to do:

Start by sautéing the onions, carrots, green peas, ginger and garlic. Then, add the quinoa and mix it into the veggies for a minute or two. Carve out a hole in the middle of your skillet and add three eggs. Allows the eggs to fully cook and add mix them into your quinoa.

Add some soy sauce, as much as you desire, and mix your quinoa thoroughly.

Finally, garnish with sesame seeds and green onions. Check out the video for the full recipe, in glorious detail. You can also make a dope cauliflower fried rice variation.
