About this recipe: This dish is similar to pineapple fried rice, only it uses quinoa instead. Quinoa is stir-fried with eggs, garlic, spring onions, coriander and pineapple. It's perfect as is or serve alongside Chinese food.


Serves: 4 

  • 170g uncooked quinoa
  • 475ml chicken stock
  • 250ml water
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon groundnut oil
  • 2 tablespoons chilli oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, pressed or finely chopped
  • 1 bunch spring onions
  • 125g diced pineapple
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed chillies or to taste

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Rinse quinoa until water runs clear. Bring the quinoa, chicken stock and water to the 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 frying pan over medium heat. Cook and stir eggs until scrambled. Remove eggs from the frying pan and set aside. Heat groundnut oil and chilli oil over medium-low heat. Cook and stir garlic for 2 minutes, then stir in spring onions to heat through. Stir in pineapple and coriander, then add the cooked quinoa. Toss with scrambled eggs, soy sauce and crushed chillies until thoroughly heated.
