Quinoa Stir Fry


Quinoa stir fry is a 1 pot wonder that has it all. There's protein from the quinoa and eggs (quinoa is a complete protein with all 8 amino acids) and lots of fiber from the peas, onions and carrots. It's a nutritionally packed meal that your whole family will love. I've added some leftover grilled chicken to this at times which was good. There's lots you can add, depending on what your fridge has to offer that day. It all works well. Broccoli cut into little bits, canadian bacon (which tastes really awesome in here), edamame or even leftover corn cut off the cob.

There's lots of flavors and textures going on in this dish. I love the garlicy butter taste on the quinoa. Seasoned with some soy sauce, it's a tasty meal that will keep your kids attention till they're all done. You can substitute white rice or brown rice for the quinoa. All 3 work equally well.

  • 2-3 cups cooked quinoa or rice
  • 2-3 scrambled eggs
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 small onion, chopped small
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • Pepper to taste

In a large skillet, melt butter. Add onions and carrots and let sauté on medium low until transluscent, or about 8 minutes. Add garlic, cook 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients, stir well. Allow to cook for an additional few minutes until the peas have warmed through.
