Directions

  1. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan; season with salt. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and let sit for 5 minutes; fluff quinoa with a fork. Refrigerate until cool, 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Mix soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, and sesame oil together in a bowl until sauce is evenly mixed.
  3. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over high heat; saute carrots and onion for 2 minutes. Add 2 scallions, garlic, and ginger; saute until fragrant, about 2 minutes more. Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and quinoa; cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  4. Stir sauce into quinoa mixture; cook and stir until evenly coated, about 2 minutes.
  5. Make well in the center of the quinoa mixture. Pour eggs into the well; cook and stir until eggs are scrambled and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add peas and cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add remaining scallion.

This was good. I made it with rice because I wanted rice but will make it with quinoa next time. We felt it has the best flavor for fried rice. I doubled the sauce amount and it turned out to be a little too much. I will probably add half the amount of sauce next time as I like having extra sauce.

Super easy and delicious. Perfectly quieted my craving for Asian food tonight! The recipe definitely lends itself to easy modifications and I'll try it next time with shrimp or tofu additions. A keeper!
