Quinoa fried rice is a quick and healthy dinner with eggs and mixed vegetables. Quinoa fried rice is an easy and simple recipe for dinner in 30 minutes.
Rinse quinoa in water several times to take away the bitter coating (saponin) from quinoa. Use a fine mesh strainer to keep quinoa from falling out while rinsing. If you are not rinsing the quinoa thoroughly then the fried rice will end up in a bitter taste.
In a small pan add a cup of water with a pinch of salt and bring it to a boil. Add quinoa to the boiling water, cover and cook until the quinoa gets cooked and the water gets absorbed by the quinoa completely. Spread quinoa on a wide plate and allow it to cool.
In a separate pan heat a tbsp of oil, add chopped garlic and cook until the garlic color changes into golden brown.
Add chopped carrot, green beans, green peas and cook until the veggies get cooked (the veggies should be little crunchy).
Push the veggies to the one side of a pan and make a space for cooking the eggs.
Add eggs, salt, pepper powder and make the scrambled eggs. Now mix the scrambled eggs with cooked vegetables in the corner of a pan, add cooked quinoa, soy sauce and mix well. Check for the taste and season the quinoa fried rice with salt and pepper and serve warm.
