There is a serious lack of good Asian food here in Georgia. My skills and recipe rotation in that particular genre have expanded quite a bit. A friend had posted her review of this recipe and I thought it sounded good and a better alternative to the regular fried rice. My hubby who has been a bit wishy-washy about me using quinoa gave a big thumbs up for this recipe. I love how filling it is and how much healthier it is. We paired it last with some teriyaki grilled salmon and broccoli. A wonderful and light alternative to the traditional Chinese food fare.
Quinoa Fried Rice (gf)
The only changes I made to this recipe were to change out the peas for edamame and to add half a block of extra firm tofu which I added before the veggies to give it a chance to brown a little. Use gluten free tamari to make this a gluten free dish.
