Serves: 4
Prep: 10
Cook: 10

    A refreshing variation to fried rice using Chinese five spice and quinoa. Super quick and easy to make and a perfect post workout meal.


    • 1 tbsp oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
    • 4 cups chopped stir-fry vegetables
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 4 cups cooked quinoa
    • 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice
    • ½ tsp salt


    1. Heat oil in wok and saute garlic and ginger for 30 seconds.
    2. Add vegetables and saute for 5 minutes.
    3. Push vegetables to side of wok. Add egg and saute to cook. Mix through vegetables.
    4. Add cooked quinoa, Chinese five spice and salt. Saute until heated through.


    • This is a refreshing variation to traditional fried rice. It uses quinoa instead of rice, and Chinese five spice instead of soy sauce. Omit egg for a vegan dish.
    • Examples of vegetables for stir frying are carrot, capsicum, corn, courgette, broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy
