Vegetable Fried Quinoa

When I discovered Kosher for Passover soy sauce I discovered a whole new menu of foods. I love cooking chinese and this version of vegetable fried rice using quinoa is great for Passover and all year round. Add tofu if it is not Passover. It is best to use day old quinoa for this, but works either way. Reheats well.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 35 min
  • Ready Time : 50 min


6 Servings


  • 3 tbsp. grapeseed oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 package of mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 5 green onions, chopped, some of the greens reserved for garnish
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa, that has been cooled (day old is best)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons kosher for passover soy sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste


Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large frying pan or wok.  Add onion to the pan and cook a few minutes.  Then add the mushrooms and garlic and ginger.   Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are browned, about 5 minutes.  Stir in the broccoli and the chopped green onions.  Cook briefly, about 1 minute.   Add last tablespoon of oil to the pan and then add the quinoa to the pan and stir.  After everything is mixed together, make a space in the pan and pour in the beaten eggs.  Mix it and incorporate into the rest of the dish.  Stir in the soy sauce, salt, and pepper to taste.  Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until completely warmed through.   Serve immediately or set aside and reheat when ready.

    Grape seed oil for Pesach? What brand? Also how true is the pesadik soy sauce on flavor?

    • There are a few KFP Grape Seed Oils, I just saw online that there will be on from Bartenura this year. I find a big difference between brands of soy sauce during the year, so I would say that the pesach one is more like the not as good regular soy sauce. Works well in dishes like this when there is a lot going on for flavor that the soy is more for color and a little saltiness.
