If you love ordering Chinese food as much as I do, you probably love how inexpensive it can be. What you might be unaware of is how unhealthy it actually is. Chinese food is high in sodium and fat and can often be detrimental to your health.
What I wanted to do is create a recipe where the sodium can be controlled and some protein and fiber can be added just by the simple substitute of quinoa.
You might be afraid of making quinoa just like I was at one point, but cooking it is similar to cooking rice and is equally as easy. (I like to cook mine in low sodium chicken broth to add some extra flavor.)
I hope you try out this recipe and discover a new grain and a new way of making unhealthy food just a little bit healthier.
