1. 1 cup quinoa cooked according to instructions here, or cooked according to the way you cook rice.

4. 1 cooked chicken de-boned (optional)
5. 2 cloves garlic chopped

8. 1 tsp dark soy sauce
9. 1 tsp light soy sauce
10. Salt & pepper to taste

Additional Information:

We had some left-over quinoa and chicken, so I decided to make into "fried rice" today. If you don't have any cooked chicken and want to make from scratch, you can use chicken breast cut into bite size and marinade with a tsp spoon corn starch, 1 tsp soy sauce and a bit of salt and pepper and fry them in the pan separately.

Quinoa is very nutritious, more so than rice. We are trying to find more ways of preparing quinoa, so that we will eat more quinoa. This is "quinoa" fried rice done according to Chinese fried rice method. I tried it today and it is very tasty and both my Mr. FECS and our Little FECS like it.
