Quinoa fried chicken with egg.

Hey readers! Living in a rice centric country is always a challenge.
Especially for a health freak like me.
As I grew up being told that white rice is well “empty calories”.

Quinoa a great alternative for white rice.
Especially when some brown rice can taste bitter or just be expensive!
If you buy Quinoa it at the right place, its also very reasonably priced!


My favorite Quinoa recipe is similar to Thai Chicken Fried Rice.

Heres a recipe for 2 hungry athletes:

-1 cup of Quinoa
-1/4 KG of diced chicken
-1 small onion
-4 big garlic clovers
-1/4 cup of olive oil
-1/8 cup of soy sauce
-2 big eggs

Cook the Quinoa in a pot – through trial and error.
I preffer 3 cups of water to 1 cup of Quinoa.
As the labels says 2 cups of water to 1 cup of Quinoa.
Which left the Quinoa hard…

In a separate pan, slow cook the chicken with onions.

Beat the eggs in a bowl then add the olive oil and soy sauce.

When both chicken/Quinoa cooked ready.
Put all the Quinoa in the pan with the chicken.
Put the heat down and add the bowl containing the egg/oil/sauce.

Stir until it all “mixes” together.
Then last minute press all the garlic into the pan – mix it all.
Put in bowl, flip upside down into plate for authentic appearance!
Then serve =)

Total time ~25 minutes.

Finally, late last year I decided to buy a garlic press.
And its been worth the small investment.
As it added a new dimension to my cooking!

Pressing the raw garlic into my meal or near the end of cooking.
Simply adds that *ZEST* into my mouth!
Instead of over cooking the garlic with the meat…

I love to add it to pasta, potatoes, omelets, rice, salads, ect.
Definitively a well used piece of equipment in my kitchen!

Anyway, if your a big rice eater and looking for a healthy alternative.
Check out some Quinoa, its definitively worth it =)
