Chinese Fried Quinoa

This recipe is very forgiving with regard to amounts and ingredients.

Chinese Fried Quinoa
1 cup quinoa
14 oz fat-free chicken broth
1 cup onion, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb. diced leftover meat (or less is fine)
1 cup frozen green peas
2 eggs
2 T. soy sauce

Rinse quinoa well with water. Cook quinoa in chicken broth, about 15-20 min until broth is absorbed. Set aside to cool. Best done the day ahead and refrigerated.

Sauté onion and pepper in some of the olive oil until translucent. Add peas and meat. Remove from pan.

Heat remaining oil. Add quinoa to pan. Add soy sauce. Add egg to mixture and cook until done, about 3 - 4 min, stirring while egg is cooking.
