Okay, so maybe referring to this dish as fried rice is a stretch. But when you can’t have half of the ingredients that typically go into fried rice, this tastes pretty spot on.
What’s in it?
1 cup quinoa
Half bag frozen peas
How to make it happen:
Cook quinoa according to package directions I like to substitute the water with chicken broth for added flavor.
In large skillet, heat olive oil. Saute shallot, then add eggs and peas and scramble in skillet. Add cooked quinoa to skillet then season to taste using garlic powder, salt and pepper.
You can add all kinds of veggies/meat to this. I just used what I had on me.
Pretty stinking delicious! Has all the flavors of fried rice just no soy sauce. I heart this dish.
