Do you know that feeling when you're walking down the streets and then some random stranger walks by you saying 'Can I order a 'FLIED LICE'?! ..well I guess..PROBABLY NOT lol! ! But although I love love LOVE eating Flied Lice (read: fried rice) I thought why not use quinoa instead of the rice and use the same technique as making fried rice normally..Well lordy lordddd… this dish came out absolutely amazing! It was so tasty..and really just so easy to make!
Like fried rice, every family, every person has its own way of making it.. so this recipe is how I thought it would be nice to flavour the fried quinoa, so again.. if you don’t like my seasoning..(you are crazy..nah kidding ;) ) but choose your own seasoning you love best!
Ingredients for 2 sexy people:
- 1 cup of leftover quinoa (or boil the quinoa and drain all of the excess water well)
- 2 egg2
- half a teaspoon of organic cuminpowde
- half a teaspoon of organic garlicpowder
- A shot of salty Soysauce
- Some linseeds
- Some mixed seeds
- Some Goatcheese ( I know this might seem weird.. but really.. this was such a great combo!!)
- Some leftover pomegranate
Start heating a round pan or wok, add some coconutoil and scramble the eggs with some salt and pepper. When the eggs are nicely scrambled get them out of the pan and set it aside. Put some coconutoil back in the pan and add the quinoa, spinach, linseeds all together with the seasoning (garlic, cumin and soysauce). You’ll see the fried quinoa is ready when the spinach is getting softer and smaller. Ok, we’re almost there but first throw back the scrambled eggs into the wok/pan and mix everything all together on maximum heat..mix mix mix for 1 minute and you are done now! Turn of the heat, put the fried rice into a nice bowl and sprinkle some chunks of goatcheese, seeds and pomegranate on top. This..my friends is a wonderful mix of Asian cooking technique combined with flavours and ingredients you wouldn’t have thought of using it in the first place.. but trust me.. this dish sure has a ‘Happy Ending’ lmao ;D
