Quinoa Fried Rice

This is one of those recipes that I was not sure where to post. I know a lot of my gluten free readers love quinoa, but I know a lot of my main site readers enjoy it as well. In the end though I decided it was perfect for my allergy section because we all need more quick, easy, and healthy gluten free meals.

This is also one of those recipes that I have been meaning to share for a long time. I think I took the pictures about the same time I took the pictures for my rice cooker quinoa, and that was a long time ago.

I came up with this idea when I had a lot of quinoa leftover in the fridge that I needed to use up, but after I made it I saw several other recipes that did basically the same thing. I guess I am not the only one with leftover quinoa sitting in my fridge.

Quinoa Fried Rice is not really fried rice, but it is quinoa that is cooked like fried rice. And it is a great way to use up leftover quinoa.

I simply cook it just like I do my fried rice, but I use quinoa instead of rice. This idea works with pretty much any fried rice recipe and you can easily add whatever vegetables you like to it.That is one of the fun things about fried rice, you can change it up and use whatever you like or have on hand.

Here is how I make quinoa fried rice.

  1. You’re blog is one of my favorites. I use your recipies often. I was just wonder what type of gf soy sauce you use? I can’t find any in my area. Thanks for all you do and keep up the great work.

    • SanJ makes several that I like. I have found them at some gourmet type grocery stores, but I have found it cheaper to just order online through either amazon or vitacost. The gluten free ones do taste a little different, but we like them and they work well in recipes like fried rice, marinades, etc. Here is the link to the SanJ website and their sauces. I hope that helps. http://www.san-j.com/product_list.asp?id=1

  2. For this reason, quinoa must be rinsed prior to serving.
    Physically, quinoa stalks are 3 to 6 feet in height and
    each plant can produce up to a cup full of seeds.
    In a food processor, grind quinoa to a powder (it may not
    completely grind down, and that’s OK, it makes the cookies crunchy.
