Vegetable Quinoa Fried Rice

This was such a satisfying dinner. Instead of rice, I used quinoa, which is packed with protein. It is also filled with vegetables like cauliflower, mushrooms, onions, peas and corn to make you feel full. Quinoa is a complete protein, which means it contains the 9 essential amino acids your body needs.

You will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup dry qunioa
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 cup peas
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 2 cups chopped cauliflower
  • 3-4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 small onions
  • 3 eggs
