Fried Quinoa with pineapples

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Quinoa is a great wheat-free alternative to starchy grains. Quinoa provides 5 times more grams of fiber and double the protein than rice- Making this fried quinoa a healthier alternative to fried rice. Pineapples give the fried quinoa a sweet and sticky taste almost like a sweet-and- sour thai dish. I decided to add pineapple because they are at their peak in March. Enjoy xx
