QUINOA FRIED RICE
PF Chang's Copycat Recipe

3 cups cooked quinoa
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cups precooked vegetable of choice (I used spinach, carrots and mushrooms; other options include broccoli, kale or peas)
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3 eggs, beaten
Optional: 1 extra egg for topping

Make sure you have cooked quinoa on hand that has already cooled (leftover quinoa works great). Here’s a how-to on cooking quinoa. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions. Saute until onions are translucent. Add in garlic. Saute for a few minutes. Fold in cooked quinoa and chopped vegetables. Pour in soy sauce and sesame oil and stir to combine. With a spatula, push the quinoa to the outer edges of the pan, creating a hole in the center.

Pour 1 tablespoon olive oil in the hole. Add eggs and scramble in the center of the pan. Once the eggs have cooked, mix with the rest of the quinoa and vegetables until fully combined. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve hot. Optional topping: cook an egg sunny side up and place on top before serving.
