Quinoa Fried Rice

Saturday, December 3, 2011

I am obsessing over quinoa.

It is so easy and yummy, not to mention healthy.

It is the perfect ingredient for your between holiday detox. If you're into that kind of thing. And if you are someone who doesn't need to worry about taking it easy on the calories between November and December 24th (lucky!), I'm pretty sure you will still enjoy this!

Especially when it is stir fried with peanut sauce and pineapple.

2 cups quinoa 
4 eggs
1 cup frozen peas and carrots
1 cup broccoli florets, chopped 
1 cup pineapple, chopped 
1/8 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 TBSP peanut butter
1-2 TBSP hoisin sauce
1/2 tsp ground ginger (or fresh ginger minced)
2 tsp sesame oil 

Prepare quinoa according to package directions.
Meanwhile whisk together soy sauce, peanut butter, hoisin sauce, and ginger. Taste and adjust to your preferences.

Heat sesame oil over medium heat in a large saute pan. Add eggs and scramble. Add rice, veggies and pineapple. Add sauce. Stir fry until ingredients are heated through, about 5 to 7 minutes.
