Pan Fried Quinoa

I've been pinteresting it up like crazy lately finding quick and easy meals.
Tonight's was totally awesome.
We loved it! Of course, I never seem to be able to follow a recipe exactly, so I will link where the inspiration came from, and post my own version :-)
Such a great way to get a complete protein and veg without it being a super heavy meal!

Pan Fried Quinoa

4 cups already cooked quinoa (always better to use day old..)
1 sweet onion
1 cup chopped carrots
2 cloves garlic
1 cup frozen peas
4 stems green onion, chopped
2 eggs
1/2 cup chicken stock
2-3 Tbsp rice vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Soy sauce or liquid amino to taste

In large saucepan, combine chicken stock, rice vinegar, onion, and carrot. Sauté uncovered until tender. Add peas, garlic, and green onion. Sauté a minute longer. Add quinoa and heat thru. Push quinoa mix off to the side of the pan and break in eggs. Scramble and incorporate into quinoa mix.
Salt, pepper, and soy sauce or amino to taste.
That's it! This made quite a big portion which is fabulous, because tomorrow I'm eating leftovers cold in lettuce wraps :-)


  1. My goodness that looks delicious. I've been looking at so many of your posts and I really love your blog. I normally stick with what I like, but I end up eating the same foods over and over again. I'm going to try one of your recipes, but I'll have to wait until payday next week.

    1. Awe! Thank you, Rachael! I hope you enjoy as we do :-)
