I began by preparing the quinoa. This is a 2:1 ratio of water/broth to quinoa. In a saucepan, I mixed the vegetable broth, quinoa, and a few spices (salt, pepper, and a 1/2 teaspoon of sesame seed oil). Bring this to a boil, and once it boils turn to low, cover, and let it cook covered for about 10-15 minutes until all liquid is absorbed. Set this aside for later.
Next, I cooked up the vegetables. Now I went the easy way because it was a late night after work, so I used some frozen veggies that were in the freezer. I defrosted them for about 2 minutes then popped them into a pan with a light coating of sesame seed oil. I cooked them until tender and added some spices (pepper, red chili flakes, and toasted sesame seeds).
Once the soy sauce is mixed in it is now time to add and cook the eggs. Therefore, I moved the mixture to the sides of the pan and added two eggs to the middle of the pan and cooked them until set.
After the eggs are set, mix the eggs in with the rest of the mixture until all combined.
Now you may enjoy! :)
