  1. Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add first part of oil and then carrots and mushrooms. Saute until tender, ~3 minutes. Add bok choy and continue cooking until starting to soften, ~3 minutes more.

  2. Pour stir-fry sauce over vegetables and bring to a simmer. Cook for 1 minute to reduce sauce. Stir in quinoa and cashews. Taste and season with some salt if needed and cook until warm. Stir in cilantro. Set stir-fry aside, covered to keep warm.

  3. Heat a nonstick pan over medium-heat. Add second part of oil and then crack eggs into heated oil. Cook until eggs are done to your liking (cook on one side for sunny-side up or flip for over-easy).

  4. Serve quinoa fried rice with eggs on top and lime wedges on the side. Finish with some hot sauce if you’d like. Enjoy!
