Step by Step Instructions:
I already had just about everything on hand, so this dish comes together in a snap with the following items: Salt, Minced Garlic, Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce, Cooking Spray, 1 Tomato diced into small pieces, 3 Egg Whites and 1 Whole Egg, Vegetable or Canola Oil, 2 Red Peppers diced into small pieces, 4 cups of cooked Quinoa, 8 Green Onions sliced, and Fish Sauce.
First I beat 3 egg whites and 1 whole egg together in a bowl.
Then I heated a large skillet over medium heat and sprayed it with cooking spray. When the skillet was hot I added the eggs along with salt for seasoning and cooked them through while scrambling them. Then the cooked eggs get set aside in a bowl until I’m ready for them.
In the same pan, I heated 2 tablespoons of canola oil over medium heat.
Then the diced red peppers, sliced green onions, and 4 cloves of minced garlic are added to the pan and cooked for 1-2 minutes.
Then the diced tomatoes get added to the pan and stirred for about a minute.
Next up, the lovely cooked quinoa is added to the pan. The recipe calls for about 4 cups of quinoa. Yum!!
Next up 4 teaspoons of soy sauce and 2 teaspoons of fish sauce are added.
Once the sauces are combined, the scrambled eggs are added back in and mixed around. Go ahead and adjust the seasonings and add more salt, soy sauce and fish sauce if needed. This is so seriously delicious and a fabulous way to eat well and get your veggies in. Serve immediately and enjoy!
