Quinoa fried ‘rice’
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons coconut or vegetable oil
  • 4 medium carrots, diced
  • 2 medium shallots, thinly sliced
  • 4 scallions, white and green parts separated, thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Sea salt
  1. While prepping vegetables, combine the quinoa and water and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low, cover and simmer until the quinoa is al dente (about 15 minutes). Uncover and remove from heat.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a wok or large skillet. Stir fry the carrots, shallot and white scallions over high heat until soft and a little browned (about 5 or 6 minutes). Add garlic, ginger, green scallions, a dash of sea salt and stir into vegetables for about 2 minutes. Add the quinoa by folding it into the vegetable mixture. Stir in soy sauce and sesame oil.
  3. If adding eggs, create a well into which you will pour the beaten eggs. Stir until nearly set, then mix in.
