I have a hard time introducing new foods to my husband. He’s very fussy and is usually sure he won’t like anything unfamiliar so I thought I’d give my traditional Vegetable Fried Rice recipe a little makeover. I use organic ingredients but that is just my personal lifestyle preference. This dish is suitable as a side dish or if you used the vegetable broth option, suitable as a vegan main dish.
Veggie Fried Quinoa
2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
½ Cup rinsed and drained Quinoa
1 Cup Beef or Vegetable Stock
½ Cup pea pods
½ Cup match stick cut carrots
½ Cup broccoli flowerets
½ Cup sliced celery
2 Tablespoons Low Sodium Soy Sauce
In a large skillet brown Quinoa in sesame oil. Add stock and soy sauce and simmer until liquid is absorbed. While Quinoa is simmering, in separate sauce pan, steam pea pods, celery, carrots and broccoli. Put Quinoa in a bowl and arranged steamed veggies around the edges. Top with slivered almond is desired, QUICK, EASY, NUTRICIOUS and DELICIOUS! BAM!
