Ingredients

  • 3.5 cups cooked quinoa about 1 cup of raw quinoa
  • 1/2 a medium sweet onion diced
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 1/2 pound broccoli florets
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 inch piece of ginger peeled and grated
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1.5 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1.5 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1.5 tablespoons ponzu sauce found in the Japanese aisle of stores
  • ½ cup frozen peas thawed
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha or chili sauce
  • ¾ teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ cup green onions finely sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds toasted if desired
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper
  • Avocado or grapeseed oil

Instructions

  1. To make the quonia, bring just over 2 cups of water to a boil in a pot and add 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Add the quinoa, mix well, and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes with the lid off the pot, you may need to add a splash more water at the end if the quinoa is not thoroughly cooked. Turn the heat off, fluff the quinoa with a large fork, and let it cool down to room temperature.
  2. ​Pre-heat a wok or large non-stick pan over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add 1-2 tablespoons of veggie oil along with the onion, next 3 ingredients, 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt, and a couple cracks of pepper. Cook for 7 until the veggies have softened, seconds stirring often. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for another 2 minutes stirring often. Add the beaten eggs and cook for 30 seconds until they resemble very soft scrambled eggs. Add the cooked quinoa and mix well. Add the soy sauce and next 5 ingredients and mix well. Cook for a couple minutes so the quinoa really soaks up the flavor, taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Take wok off the heat and add the green onions and sesame seeds.
  3. Plate the quinoa and garnish the plate with some sesame seeds and green onions. For the glazed chicken to pair with this recipe: https://www.flavcity.com/chicken-fried-rice
