Quinoa Fried Rice with Teriyaki Sauce

  • Begin by making the homemade teriyaki sauce. Quickly whisk together the olive oil, sesame oil, coconut aminos, and maple syrup to make the teriyaki sauce. Set aside.
  • On the stovetop, bring a medium skillet with olive oil to medium heat. Once the oil is warmed, add onion and garlic and cook for 2 minutes until fragrant. Add the broccoli, bell peppers, and carrots. If adding chickpeas, you may add them now. Cook for another 5-7 minutes until the veggies are tender and the chickpeas are golden.
  • Once the veggies are tender, add the quinoa and teriyaki sauce. Fry in the pan for another 5-7 minutes until the chickpeas are browned and the quinoa is crisp. Serve immediately!
