Recipe

This has been a mainstay lately for lunch. It’s a spicy take on my quinoa fried rice recipe. Usually I reach for broccoli, pea pods, and red cabbage but you could use any veggies you have on hand. I like to scramble my eggs and add them into the dish, but a poached egg on top would also be delicious. Add some tofu, shrimp, chicken, or pork for extra protein and make a big batch because it keeps great in the fridge.
