Gluten Free Quinoa fried rice

  • Hi all. I ran across this recipe the other day on the web somewhere and decided to share it with you. I can't remember where I found it or would give credit where its due....sorry! After visiting the "First Watch" in out area a few weeks ago at which my husband tried one of their quinoa dishes, which he absolutely loved, I thought I might like to surprise him with this dish.
  • It was a slam dunk hit!!! The best of both worlds...The Chinese flare which we love, but also the goodness of the veggies and protein from the quinoa.
  • If you have never tried quinoa before, or if its one of your favorites, then this recipe is a must try, as it will not disappoint.
  • Drop me a line and give me your feedback. Until next post....Enjoy.
