2 Tbsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp avocado oil (or coconut oil, vegetable oil…)
3 large eggs, lightly beaten and salted
¾ cup frozen peas, thawed
¾ cups carrots, diced
1½ tsp fresh grated ginger
2 to 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 ½ cups of cooked chicken (I used chicken thighs)
3 green onions, trimmed and sliced into thin rounds
3 cups of Ancient Harvest Harmony Quinoa, cooked
2 Tbsp tamari
Salt and pepper, optional and to taste


To a large non-stick skillet or wok, add the oils, once the oils are heated up add the eggs, stir and cook quickly over medium-high heat, set aside.

Add the peas, carrots, green onions, and cook for about 2 minutes, or until vegetables begin to soften, stir intermittently.

Add the garlic and the ginger cook for 1 minute, stir intermittently.

Add the chicken, quinoa and the eggs, evenly drizzle with soy sauce, optional salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Cook for about 2 minutes, serve immediately.
