QUINOA VEGGIE QUINOA “FRIED RICHE”
Eat To Defeat states that it has a lot of health benefits, including the abundance of proteins, unsaturated fatty acids, essential vitamins, and minerals. It can even help reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.
It’s also delicious! This “fried rice dish” was a great success, as it blended so beautifully with the vegetables. The drizzled Sriracha on top was the perfect finishing touch!
Here’s how to make it:
Start by sweating some garlic and onions for 5 minutes.
We’ll then add our broccoli, mushrooms, and zucchini and let them become tender.
The next step is to add the corn, peas, carrots, and quinoa.
When the sauce is hot, add the ginger and soy.
We’ll finish by adding the green onions and the diced egg (for the eggs, you need to fry two beaten eggs on low heat until they are cooked).
Serve immediately with Sriracha, the most important of all ingredients!
Divide two tablespoons of olive oil into equal parts.
Two large eggs, beaten
Two cloves garlic, minced
One small onion diced
8 ounces of mushrooms, sliced
One head of broccoli, cut into florets
One zucchini, chopped
Half a cup of frozen corn
Half a cup of frozen peas
Peel and grate two carrots
3 cups cooked quinoa
Fresh ginger grated to 1 tablespoon
Three tablespoons soy sauce
Green onions, two slices
Sriracha is used for serving.
In a medium-sized skillet, heat one tablespoon of olive oil on low heat. Fry eggs until they are cooked through. This will take about 2-3 minutes on each side. Flip only once. Let cool before dicing into small pieces.
In a large wok or skillet, heat the remaining one tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onion and frequently stir until the onions are translucent (about 4-5 minutes).
Add mushrooms, broccoli, and zucchini. Stir constantly until vegetables are cooked, approximately 3-4 minutes.
Add carrots, quinoa, corn and peas. Stir constantly while cooking until heated, approximately 1-2 minutes.
Stir gently to combine. Cook with constant stirring until heated, approximately 2 minutes.
Add green onions and the eggs.
If desired, drizzle with Sriracha and serve immediately.
