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.
Easily make this vegetarian by using vegetable stock instead.
Very good. I added frozen peas to get more veggies, used yellow onion instead of green, and only 2 eggs. The flavor was excellent! So glad to have a new way to use quinoa! - 31 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love quinoa, although I have never made it before. My husband is not very adventurous and probably wouldn't have tried it if I had told him what it was before I set the plate in front of him. I just told him it was "like pineapple fried rice, but with a different grain" and he gave it a go. He loved it, which says a lot! My kids and I loved it, too. It makes a lot, or at least I thought, but everyone wanted extra helpings, so it didn't last long. I will definitely be making this again (and now I'll probably be able to get the hubby to try more quinoa dishes, as well.) I made it exact to recipe, except I used probably a full cup of canned crushed pineapple -- however much was in a standard size can. Crushed is the perfect size so you get some pineapple in each bite. This was fantastic, and very easy, and I will definitely be making it again. - 25 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was amazing! However, i think that 3 cups of liquid would be too much, as the normal quinoa ratio is 1:2. So i only used 2c water, used sesame oil b/c i didn't have peanut, used a yellow onion as that's all I had on hand, and didn't have cilantro. Also, didn't add pepper flakes as I thought it was spicy enough. My husband and I loved it and will be making this often! - 10 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
