    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger

    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 4 cups cooked quinoa
    • 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice
    • ½ tsp salt

    1. Heat oil in wok and saute garlic and ginger for 30 seconds.
    2. Add vegetables and saute for 5 minutes.
    3. Push vegetables to side of wok. Add egg and saute to cook. Mix through vegetables.

    Tips

    • This is a refreshing variation to traditional fried rice. It uses quinoa instead of rice, and Chinese five spice instead of soy sauce. Omit egg for a vegan dish.
    • Examples of vegetables for stir frying are carrot, capsicum, corn, zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower and bok choy.
