    Fried Quinoa with Crab

    Fried Quinoa with Crab is a tasty and nutritious take on Chinese rice. Chaufa is a stir-fried rice and a common Asian-inspired dish in Peruvian culture. The addition of crab meat, as well as using quinoa instead of rice is a healthy alternative that boosts flavor and texture.

    1
    cup
    Quinoa
    2

    natural chicken broth
    4
    tablespoons

    1
    egg, lightly whisked
    3
    cloves
    garlic
    1
    tablespoon
    grated ginger
    1/2

    2
    cans
    Bumble Bee® Crabmeat
    2
    ounces
    bacon, small diced and fried
    3
    tablespoons
    low sodium soy sauce
    4
    scallions
    1/2
    cup
    fresh peas
    *
    sesame seeds for garnish
    1
    ají chile
    Directions
    Before boiling, rinse quinoa by placing it in a sieve and clean under running water for at least one minute.
    Add quinoa and broth or water to a pot and cook on high heat. Add salt to taste. Cook until it boils. Reduce to low heat, cover, and let it sit for 10 minutes or until most of the water is evaporated. You will know quinoa is ready when a ring pops out of the seeds and they appear translucent.
    In a sauté pan or wok on high heat, add oil and egg, and scramble. Add garlic, ginger, and pepper and stir for two minutes.
    Add crab and keep stirring for two more minutes. Add quinoa, bacon and soy sauce and continue stir frying until well heated. Add scallions and peas and stir for two more minutes.
    If desired, sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve and enjoy!
