Quinoa Fried Rice

Submitted by: HAPPYGIRL4284
Quinoa Fried Rice

Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1 t minced garlic
    1/2 t minced ginger
    1/4 yellow onion, finely diced
    1/2 cup peas, fresh or frozen
    1/2 cup corn, fresh or frozen
    1/2 cup shredded carrot
    1 cups cooked quinoa (1/4 dry)
    1 tsp mirin (rice wine vinegar)
    1 Tbsp soy sauce or tamari
    1 eggs
    salt + pepper, to taste (I didn't need any)

Directions

Coat medium saucepan with cooking spray and put over medium heat. Saute garlic and ginger for 1 minute. Add vegetables and cook until thawed, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add quinoa, soy sauce and mirin. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until quinoa has absorbed the liquid.

In the middle of your saucepan, push fried quinoa to the side to create a hole. Pour egg inside the hole and let cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Gently mix the quinoa and eggs. Let cook for an additional minute. Mix again. Repeat until egg is completely cooked. Season with salt + pepper.

To serve, portion quinoa fried rice into two bowls and top with Sriracha, if desired.
