We all crave the comfort of high sodium, bad for you foods, but most of these are packed with preservatives! Here is a simple and delicious quinoa fried recipe! The perfect, healthy alternative to take out.
When I first discovered this I made it for 4 days in a row because it tasted so good! I haven't had Chinese food in years and was so happy to discover this alternative. It’s perfect for anyone, especially those on Candida Clear where you can have quinoa in place of rice!
All you need is quinoa, frozen veggies, a couple eggs and coconut oil!
Cook your quinoa. I sometimes will make a large batch and keep it in the fridge until I am ready to warm it up. Then, when I want to make something, I just quickly heat it up in the skillet with coconut oil.
Make your frozen veggies. I get mine at Costco- great price for how much you get. They are organic too!
Now put it all together. In a large skillet (on low/medium heat) put 1 to 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, quinoa, mixed veggies and 1 to 2 eggs. In a smaller skillet you can use 1 egg and larger skillet 2 eggs. Once the eggs start to slightly cook mix them around with the quinoa and veggies. Keep slowly mixing everything until the eggs are pretty well done. Add in a little bit of sea salt and pepper for a little more flavor. There you have it! Dinner is ready!
Another option would be to throw in some chicken, shrimp, or steak!
