Vegan Quinoa Special Fried Rice

This high protein combination looks to me like a vegan version of special fried rice! The pinkish haricot beans look suspiciously like prawns, the golden quinoa like fried rice and the avocado like egg! It is my new favourite main meal as it is so delicious! I always go back for seconds!

You could try the recipe with rice, but I prefer quinoa as it is a higher source of protein and quicker to cook. Peas and beans are also great sources of vegan protein.

Serves 2

150g                           Quinoa

100g                           Frozen Peas

1 can (250g)               Haricot Beans

½                                Ripe Avocado

1/4tsp                         Pink Crystal Salt

1/4tsp                         Black Pepper

1                                 Small carrot finely chopped (optional)

Cook the quinoa and peas in boiling water for 10 minutes, until all the water has been absorbed.

Rinse the beans in a colander. Cut the avocado in half, cut slices into the flesh and peel off the skin.

Add the avocado slices and beans to the cooked quinoa and peas. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well.

Serve warm. Store the leftovers in a container in the fridge.
