{vegan} Garlicky Ginger Fried Rice – peace. love. quinoa

Mar 08

It seems that I always have leftover cooked rice and/or quinoa in my refrigerator. I tend to make to always make extra quinoa & rice when I do make them because they can sit in the refrigerator for an extended period without going bad. AND it saves me time when preparing my next meals. 

I recently used leftover quinoa atop a salad and I used leftover brown rice to make this fried rice. I like that this friend rice requires minimal ingredients, is quick and easy to make, and is filling
