    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place quinoa in a small saucepan, toast over medium heat (quinoa will turn golden brown and will pop as it is toasting.).
    2. 2
      Stir in 3/4 cup water and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until quinoa absorbs water, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork and leave uncovered.
    3. 3
      Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook carrot, stirring occasionally, until it softens, about 1 minute. Add bell pepper, ginger, garlic and chile, if desired; cook, stirring frequently, about 2 minutes. Add peas, sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute.
    4. 4
      Remove vegetables and return skillet to heat; add quinoa, along with egg. Cook, stirring constantly, until egg is evenly distributed, about 2 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add vegetables, chicken, scallions, cilantro and soy sauce; cook 1 minute more. Divide stir-fry among 4 bowls; serve warm.

      Loved it. I much prefer the texture of quinoa to most kinds of rice, so I was glad to find this recipe. Replaced the snow peas with Chinese red noodle beans from our garden. Will make again!

      This was a neat way to use quinoa. Chopped cilantro added a lot of flavor, too. Next time I might top with a light sauce. Thanks Swissms, for posting.
