Quinoa Fried Rice

Hey hey everyone. I'm so sorry for not posting as often as I have been before. I've been so busy. School, studying, volunteering, working out, hanging with friends, it gets so busy! 
Anyway, I've been doing my best to manage my time. I have time for everything, except keeping up with my blogging. It's going to get even crazier once I start taking higher level classes later on, and especially if I get a part time job.  
Anyway, here's a quick and easy quinoa fried rice recipe that I love. It's really simple to make and I've been eating it a lot. Here's the recipe. 

  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup egg whites (egg substitute, I used egg beaters)
  • 1 boca burger, cut into pieces (or any other meat you want to use)
  • 3-4 tablespoon tamari
  1. Cook the quinoa with the water. 
  2. In a nonstick pan, heat up the frozen boca burger (or any other meat you want to use) and the eggs. Then, add in the quinoa. 
  3. After adding in the quinoa, mix it so that all the ingredients mix together. 
  4. Mix in the tamari. You can add more if you like more of a soy sauce taste. 
  5. Enjoy
This past week has been quite active and busy. But, I seriously love this semester better than last semester. 

Anyway, I'm really debating whether to continue strength training. My muscles are growing, that's for sure, but it's adding bulk. I'm not sure if I really want that look. My thighs and arms, you can really tell. The only good thing I can say is that, I've gotten a few compliments saying that I have nice legs. 

Anyway, I went to a local diner the PAST weekend (not this weekend) and I ordered the buffalo chicken salad. It was so good (but not that healthy, since there was deep-fried chicken). The salad was huge but it was delicious! The chicken was really spicy and I loved that. It also came with cheese, balsamic-raspberry vinaigrette  and a sliced boiled egg (and other things too, as you can see from the picture). 

After, I ordered this chocolate sundae. It was huge! 

Well, huge for my liking, anyway. It was so delicious though. Hey. It's good to indulge once in a while. 

Anyway, I guess that's it for now. I have to get some reading done and do research for my group debate. 

What are your plans for the weekend? 
Do you have any delicious quinoa recipes? 


  1. Hi Helen,

    I have read so much about quinoa but have not try cooking with it before. Fried quinoa (instead of fried rice) sounds low carb to me :D


    1. Hi Zoe,

      Quinoa is so good but it does take time getting used to. Try cooking with quinoa and tell me how it turns out. And, it does sound low carb and gluten free too.


  2. Your Sundae looks humungous! I wish we could get sundaes like that in Australia :( I've read all about it but I've never tried quinoa before.....what does it taste like?

    1. Hi Von! Thanks for stopping by. And, yes. The sundae was humngous! It was so yummy too. And, you can make your own, if you want.
      And, quinoa takes some time getting use to, especially if you're used to eating white rice. My mom does not like quinoa (she's a jasmine rice eater), but I do. Quinoa has a nutty taste to it.

    1. Hi Lisa!

      Thanks! The quinoa fried rice is yummy. =) And, thanks for dropping by.

  4. I need to try this recipe for Jesse - he's still not convinced 100% on quinoa - he loves my quinoa bakes but is hesitant with other things, but I think Quinoa fried rice could be a winner!!

    1. Haha. Yes! I think he'll like this recipe. Quinoa is so good! =)
