Vegetable fried rice is a colourful dish to serve along side many different versions of chicken fingers. The key to getting the rice to crisp up is frying it cold from the fridge.
Quinoa is that super grain with lots of protein that keeps well in the refrigerator. When I make this salad I usually double the recipe so that after we enjoy it with dinner then I can have it for lunch during the week. In the summer this salad goes well along along side one of your barbeque favourites.
This recipe is much healthier than a take-out option. Pack it with vegetables you happen to have in your fridge of freezer. Any protein will work – leftover chicken, pork, steak, shrimp or even tofu. Here I have suggested some ingredient options but this recipe is very flexible. You can even stir fry leftover quinoa.
