Pineapple Fried Quinoa

"Like pineapple fried rice, but with the ancient grain quinoa. Simple to make and bursting with Asian flavors! Always nice with fresh pineapple, but canned or frozen work well, too."

  1. Rinse quinoa until water runs clear. Bring the quinoa, chicken broth and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Beat the eggs in a bowl. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir eggs until scrambled. Remove eggs from the skillet and set aside. Heat peanut oil and chili oil over medium-low heat. Cook and stir garlic for 2 minutes, then stir in green onions to heat through. Stir in pineapple and cilantro, then add the cooked quinoa. Toss with scrambled eggs, soy sauce, and red pepper flakes until thoroughly heated.

Five cloves of garlic is overkill. I would recommend one clove, maybe two if you really like garlic. Also, there is too much extra liquid in the recipe. The texture was too soft right out of ...

I love quinoa, although I have never made it before. My husband is not very adventurous and probably wouldn't have tried it if I had told him what it was before I set the plate in front of him....

This was amazing! However, i think that 3 cups of liquid would be too much, as the normal quinoa ratio is 1:2. So i only used 2c water, used sesame oil b/c i didn't have peanut, used a yellow o...

One word - YUM! My boyfriend even loved it which is a huge deal as he's a meat and potatoes guy. I made the quinoa in the rice cooker ahead of time. Then I added chili flakes and oil to a pan an...

Fabulous! I did decrease the chili oil by 1 Tablespoon to lower the heat, and I don't think it needs that much oil anyway. We are meat eaters, so to make a heartier meal I also pan fry some ch...

Very good with a bit of a spicy 'bite" to it! My son-in-law begged for the recipe. Due to what I had on hand, I subbed olive oil for peanut oil, more broth for the water, a small diced white o...

I also added ham like another reviewer for more protein which was great. Yummy with a good mix of flavors. Not quite a 5 star for me - I tend not to measure too much and just toss things in an...

I nice spicey rendition to my box.
