By now, most of us know how good quinoa is for us. Right? This Andean superfood is packed with protein, fiber, minerals, anti-inflammatory properties, and other goodies, making it the kind of ingredient you definitely want to include in your family's meals as often as possible.
This quinoa "fried rice" does just that. If you have a favorite fried rice recipe, all you need to do is replace the rice with cooked quinoa; I used white quinoa here, but any color is fine. And even though I took the time to make my quinoa from scratch and chop my veggies, if you're a busy mom with no time to waste in the kitchen, you can have this meal ready in a matter of minutes by using frozen or canned veggies, and any leftover quinoa you may have in the refrigerator.
You can also use any vegetables your family likes, such as corn, peas, green beans, cauliflower, carrots or broccoli.
This recipe can be made gluten-free if you use gluten-free tamari or gluten-free soy sauce instead of regular soy sauce.
