Since learning that I love quinoa, I decided to try to use it as a different ingredient in some of our favorite recipes. This recipe is kind of a different take on vegetable fried rice (without the egg). I have to say, I was very pleased with how it came out, as was my husband. He said that’s how I should cook it from now on! I put chicken in it this time, but I think I’ll leave it out next time. Give this a try next time you’re looking for a light side, or even a lighter lunch!
1 cup quinoa, rinsed well
2 tbsp lite soy sauce
1 can low-sodium beef broth
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup frozen broccoli florets
Combine all ingredients into a small pot with a lid. Stir well and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook for about 20 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Fluff and serve.
