1 cup quinoa, double rinsed in cold water
2 cups water
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup edamame
1 carrot, diced or shredded
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
(Optional: for more protein, include ¼ cup of roasted chicken strips or a ¼ cup of black beans, drained)




Cook quinoa according to instructions. Set aside. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium high heat. If using, add chicken and sauté until it loses its pink color. Add the edamame and carrots and sauté. Add soy sauce, ginger, and honey and stir together. Add the quinoa. Stir together and serve like a fried rice.
