Quinoa Fried Rice is a fun alternative to the typical fried rice and will give you a boost of protein and fiber!

 
By now (2017), many people have heard of quinoa (But I bet you haven’t heard of quinoa fried rice!)  Quinoa was a huge food trend for a while so I think most people are aware of this nutritious grain. It is a perfect grain for stove-shy cooks since it is essentially a just add water type of grain! It’s not as intimidating as one may think.

Quinoa is super versatile too! I like adding it into my eggs in the morning, you can add it into salads, make tabbouleh with it, and much more. Plus, a little goes a long way since it is very satisfying.

This recipe has no butter and minimal sauces added to it. And clearly instead of using white rice I am using the quinoa for all of the health benefits it offers – like the protein and fiber I’ve mentioned, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, potassium and B-vitamins. I hope you enjoy this recipe!!
