Quinoa Fried ‘Rice’

After a gym session I usually don’t want to spend loads of time preparing dinner, I want something in under 20 mins to get in ma belly!

If you have some left over quinoa (or rice) from another meal in your fridge, then this is a super healthy dinner you could put together in under 20 minutes!


*Serves 4


  • 1 tbsp  sesame oil
  • 3 garlic gloves, minced
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa, chilled
  • 3 cups organic mix frozen veggies
  • 3  Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger



  1. Heat the oil and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until fragrant about 30 seconds.
  2. Add quinoa, veggies, soy sauce and ginger and cook until starting to soften and coated in flavoring, about 10-15 minutes on medium heat.

*Optional: If you are not a vegan, you can add in a scrambled egg to the dish as well. My hubby loves it with an egg so we separate out our dishes and he adds one in 🙂
