Happy Friday Everyone. I hope you all had a good week. I celebrated my 5th wedding anniversary and had a fabulous time going on a date with my Hubby. He got me new Brooks Ghost6 shoes which made me super happy. They are fabulous and make my feet just as happy to be running again:) He also told me about our fun surprise trip we are going on just the two of us. Europe Here We Come!! Woot Woot! I’m so excited. I will miss my little girl for sure, but this trip is a dream trip for me. Can not wait!
Well on to the recipe for today. This healthy version of Fried Rice is amazing and a great alternative to the classic Chinese dish. I originally found this recipe HERE. I wanted to try it and share it with all of you. It was very easy to make and makes a great side dish to any meal or add chicken and it can be the main course. So here is is.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 small onion, diced
- 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
- 1 head broccoli, cut into florets
- 1 zucchini, chopped
- 1/2 cup frozen corn
- 1/2 cup frozen peas
- 2 carrots, peeled and grated
- 3 cups cooked quinoa
- 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 green onions, sliced
- Sriracha, for serving
- Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium skillet over low heat. Add eggs and fry until cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side, flipping only once. Let cool before dicing into small pieces.
- Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat. Add garlic and onion, and cook, stirring often, until onions have become translucent, about 4-5 minutes.
- Add mushrooms, broccoli and zucchini. Cook, stirring constantly, until vegetables are tender, about 3-4 minutes.
- Add corn, peas, carrots and quinoa. Cook, stirring constantly, until heated through, about 1-2 minutes.
- Add ginger and soy sauce, and gently toss to combine. Cook, stirring constantly, until heated through, about 2 minutes.
- Stir in green onions and eggs.
- Serve immediately, drizzled with Sriracha, if desired.
