  • 1½ cups (300g) white quinoa, cooked 
  • 3 green onions (scallions), thinly sliced

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add the ginger and garlic, and cook for 1–2 minutes or until lightly golden. Add the quinoa and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10–12 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Add the onion and soy sauce and toss to combine.
