I made it into a stir fried meal for two with chicken and it turned out really well. My only regret is that I made just enough for two and there were no leftovers to tide me over the next day.
1 cup Quinoa, washed three times in a large wire mesh strainer; salt to taste; 1/2 cup shelled peas; 1 tsp ginger garlic paste; 1 dsp olive oil; 1 onion sliced; 2 cups warm water; 1 medium sized pandanus leaf.
Heat olive oil in a non stick pan and stir fry the onions and ginger garlic till golden brown. Add the Quinoa and stir fry on a medium flame till all the grains are coated. Transfer to rice cooker, add the peas, pandanus leaf, warm water and salt to taste. Cook till done and serve with Roast Chicken. Smells good, has a lovely nutty flavour and am certainly going to make it again.
