Quinoa fried rice

13 May

I’ve made a quinoa fried rice before and liked it. Figured I’d try a different recipe this time. The first one was definitely better! Had too add a lot of soy sauce to this one to make it less bland! I also threw in some rotisserie chicken!

4 cups cooked quinoa
8 scallions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 red peppers, diced small
1 tomato, diced small
4 tsp low sodium soy sauce
2 tsp fish sauce
2 tsp vegetable oil
spray oil
3 egg whites, scrambled
1 whole egg, scrambled

In a nonstick wok, spray oil and add the eggs and salt and cook a minute or two until done. Set aside.

Add the remaining oil to the wok and add the scallions, peppers and garlic. Saute about a minute, add the tomato and stir in all the quinoa. Add soy sauce and fish sauce stir to mix all the ingredients. Keep stirring a few minutes, then add cooked scrambled egg. Adjust soy sauce if needed to taste and mix well another 30 seconds.
