Quinoa Vegetable fried "rice"Submitted by: MARYDAZ
IntroductionFried rice using quinoa instead of rice, edamame and egg for protein, and lots of frozen veggies to keep things easy. Fried rice using quinoa instead of rice, edamame and egg for protein, and lots of frozen veggies to keep things easy.
1 cup leftover cooked quinoa (super easy when done in a rice cooker and using vegetable broth for more flavor)
1 package mixed vegetables, any variety you like (asian stir-fry, broccoli medley is good)
1 cup frozen edamame, shelled
2 tsp canola oil
3 tbsp tamari soy sauce
1 clove minced garlic
1 tsp corn starch dissolved in warm water
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar added to tamari
Chili pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
Move mixture up sides of wok to make space in the middle of the pan for the egg. Break into pan and scramble, eventually incorporating into mixture.
Season with pepper flakes, salt and pepper or other seasonings as you like.
NOTE: This makes two VERY generous servings. Could easily be split into 3-4 servings. Low sodium soy sauce could be substituted in place of tamari to lower the sodium.
