Miso Fried Quinoa
with grated carrots / shiitakes / bok choy / fried eggs
- Garlic - 2 cloves, chopped
- Water - 1/4 cup
- Soy sauce, low-sodium - 1/4 cup
- Honey - 1 Tbsp
- Miso paste - 1 Tbsp
- Chili garlic sauce - 2 tsp (sub any hot sauce)
- Carrots - 8 oz, shredded (look for pre-shredded)
- Mushrooms, any brown - 8 oz, sliced (look for pre-sliced)
- Baby bok choy - 12 oz, sliced
- Limes - 1, wedges
- Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp + 1 Tbsp
- Spicy miso stir-fry sauce (ingredients listed separately) - ~3/4 cup
- Quinoa, cooked (leftover from Tuesday) - 1 1/2 cups
- Cashews, roasted and unsalted - 1/2 cup
- Eggs - 4
- Hot sauce (opt) - for serving
Make miso stir-fry sauce - Chop garlic. Whisk together garlic, water, soy sauce, honey, miso paste and chili garlic sauce. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
Carrots - Shred carrots (if not using pre-shredded). (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
Mushrooms / Bok choy / Limes - Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done up to 2 days ahead)
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.
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. Set stir-fry aside, covered to keep warm.
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).
Serve quinoa fried rice with eggs over top. Finish with some hot sauce if you’d like. Enjoy!
Way too salty.0 Helpful
I only made the chicken, but this was delicious! If anything, it was a little too salty. However, I think I was pretty generous with the salt when I mixed the raw chicken with salt and baking powder, so maybe that was my fault. My husband did NOT tell me it was too salty and he ate 2 servings worth. So overall, a huge success!!0 Helpful
I was surprised to find I like the adobo chicken wing recipe better, because miso is wonderful, but I might have put too many wings on the tray. Will try again!0 Helpful
I'll probably double the wings next time, because this wasn't close to enough food for us. I really liked it though!0 Helpful
I want to eat the spicy miso sauce on everything ever0 Helpful
Definitely use low-sodium soy so it's not too salty!0 Helpful
