Kale and Quinoa Fried Rice, a healthy and high protein vegan variation of traditional fried rice made in under an hour!
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ½ cup yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 bunch kale, destemmed and finely chopped
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame
  • ½ cup frozen corn
  • 2-3 tablespoons Bragg's Amino Acids or tamari (you can use soy sauce as well, but the recipe will no longer be gluten-free)
  • 1-2 tablespoons toasted sesame seed oil
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional)
  1. In a medium sauce pan bring water to a boil. Add quinoa, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until water is absorbed, around 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, over medium high heat add coconut oil to a wok or large skillet. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook until fragrant.
  3. Add carrots, kale, edamame and corn and cook until carrots are tender crisp and kale is wilted.
  4. Toss in cooked quinoa, add Bragg's Amino acids or tamari and toasted sesame seed oil.
  5. Remove from heat and top with scallions and sesame seeds.
  6. Enjoy!
