Vegetable Fried Quinoa

Here is another quinoa dish for you. Yes, I eat a lot of quinoa, but it's so versatile and easy to make. It's a complete protein, full of vitamins and minerals, high in fiber, weight loss friendly and it's gluten free. 

Cook up a batch of quinoa. In a large pot with a lid, add three cups veg broth and one cup of rinsed quinoa. Bring it to a boil, reduce the heat to medium low, cover and let it cook for about 15 to 20 minutes

Here is what you will need for #VegetableFriedQuinoa
1 cup of cooked quinoa
1 cup of carrots diced
1 cup of peas
1 bunch of green onions
1 garlic clove minced
a pink size piece of ginger minced
1 tbsp of evoo
2 tbsp of tamari or soy sauce
optional riced cauliflower and broccoli
also optional, a strip or two of seaweed

Start by heating up the oil in a fry pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger. Stir for just about a minute or until the garlic and ginger is heated through.

Add the carrots. If using raw carrots, cover for about five minutes. This will help them get tender faster. If using frozen cooked carrots, continue by adding the peas, the optional cauliflower and broccoli, quinoa and green onion. Stir until everything is heated through. Add the tamari. Taste to make sure it's to your liking. Enjoy!!!
