:: Laura's Asian Quinoa Recipe ::

I can't wait to try this one!

5 dried shitake mushrooms, soaked in hot water, sliced
Reserve and strain mushroom liquid
Half carrot thinly julienned
1 tbsp dried shrimp, soaked and minced

Heat 1 tbsp sesame oil
Fry onions until lightly browned, then ginger and then garlic
Add shrimp and mushrooms and fry until fragrant
Add qiunoa and stir fry until quinoa is coated in oil
Add enough liquid (chicken stock or veg stock and mushroom liquid) to cook the quinoa
Once it is cooked (10-12 minutes)
Fluff it and stir in the julienne carrots
Season with salt and white pepper
Garnish with slice fried eggs or boiled eggs
