Leftover Quinoa Fried Rice


Servings: 2-4

1 tablespoons sesame oil

1½ cups cooked quinoa

½ cup carrot, chopped

½ cup frozen edamame beans

2 garlic cloves, crushed

2 eggs

2 tablespoon soy sauce

Pepper, to taste

1 green onion, sliced


Sesame seeds

Additional green onion, sliced


1. Heat sesame oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.

2. Add the quinoa to the pan and stir. Cook until the quinoa is hot.

3. Stir in carrots and edamame and heat through.

4. Push the quinoa mixture to the sides of the pan creating a hole in the center. Add garlic to the center and stir to lightly cook, then mix into the quinoa.

5. Make another hole in the quinoa and crack two eggs in the middle of the pan. Scramble them without mixing with the quinoa, then once eggs are cooked, mix together.

6. Stir in soy sauce, pepper, and green onion.

7. Garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.

8. Enjoy!
