³ Description

If you love egg fried rice and you're a fan of quinoa, then you'll love this recipe! I decided to substitute the rice for quinoa to make a high protein, low carb post workout meal.

² Ingredients

  •  1 medium Egg
  •  1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
  •  1 tsp Ginger (Ground)
  •  1 cube (6 fl oz prepared) Chicken Stock
  •  1 clove Garlic
  •  1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
  •  1/2 cup Green Peas (Frozen)
  •  1 cup Quinoa
  •  1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  •  100 g Prawns

q Directions

Cook the Quinoa: Boil the water in a pan, add the chicken stock then add the quinoa.

Simmer for 15 minutes or until the water has all been absorbed.

Heat the olive oil and sautee the onions for a few minutes until soft. Add the garlic and prawns. Cook for a few more minutes.

Add the seasoning, ginger, soy sauce and peas.

In a separate pan, add a little olive oil and scramble the egg.

Once the quinoa is done, add it to the prawns and mix. Season with salt and pepper if desired.

Add the scrambled egg right at the end.
