Vegetable Fried Quinoa

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 | 7:45 PM

The last few weeks, I have been enjoying quinoa in a totally different way. I substituted quinoa in the place of rice and made my favorite Indo - Chinese version of quinoa. Everyone knows that quinoa has a very nutty taste and smell. Lots of people do not like it very much just for that reason. But in this recipe, I was mildly surprised at the soy sauce, garlic flavors taking over the the nutty flavor. A very simple main dish to prepare when you have left over quinoa. I found that it works best when the quinoa is cold or not freshly prepared. It does not get too sticky and looks fluffy. With a bunch of veggies and some left over quinoa this one is a winner.
