Quinoa Fried Rice


Hai friends today i am coming with healthy recipe called "Quinoa Fried Rice".Its very simple and easy to prepare.Its healthy version.We can sustitue instead of rice.I tried fried rice with brown rice,quinoa ,couscous and millets too.I liked in all varieties.You all can try what ever u like.We can add more vegetables too.

Quinoa:Quinoa is native to Bolivia and is a relative of Swiss chard, spinach and beets—bet you didn’t know that. What’s more, it’s comes in three varieties (whole grain white, red and black) and it’s a nutritional powerhouse. Just one cup contains 8g of protein, 5g of fiber, 15% DV iron, 30% DV magnesium, 19% DV folate and heart-healthy omega 3 fatty acids.
Quinoa is also a complete protein, which means it provides all nine essential amino acids necessary for good health, hence the name “essential.” Your body can’t produce these nutrients itself, so you have to get them frequently through food. Amino acids support strong muscles, keep our immune systems in tip-top shape and do lots of other stuff to keep our bodies healthy—thing is, not all plant-based proteins are created equal. Wheat, rice and most other grains are missing one or more essential amino acids, but quinoa is a one-stop shop. Nice, right? Suddenly the word “wholesome” takes on a whole new meaning.
