    Pinterest is putting me to sleep lately. :yawn:I need new recipes to try and these days I seem to be eating about 75% vegetarian so that's where I'll start. @Posta you're somewhat of a foodie, right? Show me what you got.

    These were my delicious vegetarian ribs that I made last week. That was all my meal consisted of.

    If my meal is vegetarian, then usually it's something carb-heavy that's already filling with no meat required.

    Chinese-fried quinoa (no shrimp or ham required)

    Wild mushroom noodles

    Salad rolls (although they should contain shrimp or pork to be especially delicious)

    Veggie noodle salad

    Homemade spinach & cheese pasta

    I'm remembering from memory, so hopefully it's accurate enough. And these are just loose instructions, I always taste and adjust flavours until it's good.




    Chinese-Fried Quinoa:
    Sesame oil
    1/2 onion, finely chopped
    2 carrots, finely chopped
    1 cup of loosely chopped mushrooms
    2 tablespoons minced garlic
    2 tablespoons minced ginger
    1 bag small, uncooked shrimp
    4 cups of cooked leftover quinoa (if you have none, cook it with chicken broth and leave it in the fridge overnight)
    3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
    5 tablespoons soy sauce
    1 tablespoon sesame oil
    3 eggs, lightly scrambled but still raw
    3 scallions, thinly sliced
    1 cup peas
    Sesame seeds
    Green onions

    Heat some sesame oil in a wok, add the onion, carrots and mushrooms on high heat for about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger and shrimp, cooking for another two minutes. Remove from wok and set aside.

    To the same wok, add a little bit more sesame oil and pour in the quinoa, stir-frying for about 4 minutes. Reduce to medium heat. Meanwhile, mix the teriyaki, soy sauce and sesame oil together and mix it thoroughly with the quinoa, being careful not to mush it up.

    Make an open space in the middle of the wok, pushing the quinoa to the sides and pour the half-cooked scrambled eggs in the middle, cooking them and mixing them with the rest of the food (you can fully scramble the eggs ahead of time if you want).

    Add the veggie and shrimp mixture back in. Add the sliced scallions, green onions, peas, mix and top with sesame seeds.

    That's perfect, I just need a starting point. Never in my life have I followed a recipe to a T, unless for baking.
    On a side note this might make my top 5 quinoa recipes, I'm going to test it out this weekend.

    This is easily my favorite way to make quinoa, it tastes so much like fried brown rice.
    My mom used to try to cook us healthy food and quinoa a lot, but it was always terrible because she'd mix in things like cranberries, walnuts, a bit of orange juice to sweeten it a bit, etc.

    Screw that, quinoa doesn't HAVE to taste healthy and gross, it can easily be made to taste delicious.

    Oh, a bit of oyster sauce also makes everything better.

    I LOVE cranberries but I'm picky about flavour mixing. Your recipe appeals to me because I think all the flavours blend beautifully. (Aside from shrimp because I'm hardcore allergic) :p
