Sorry for my long absence. I was often in the hospital and My daughter, Pepa Carlota, was born this May. A newborn baby is loads of work, and even more for a single mom like myself.
I was in the mood for peruvian and there is nothing easier to make than an Arroz Chaufa. That is my favorite chinese-peruvian fusion dish. We used to have this when we had rice leftovers at home. But I was browsing my facebook timeline and someone said that Aymara made a version with quinoa instead of rice, and I had to try that at home.
100 gr Quinoa
250 gr of pork meat (I used a very thick bacon)
1 tblsp neutral oil
Cook the quinoa following pack instructions and leave to cool. I use fond instead of water cause this make the quinoa taste even better.
Beat the eggs with salt and pepper and make an omelette. Cut it in 1 cm stripes.
In a wok, pour in the oil and pork and fry until golden. Remove the pork and the paprika and scallions and fry on a medium-high heat for 2 mins until the moisture starts to evaporate, then add 3 tbsp soya sauce. Leave to fry for 1 min more.
Add the quinoa and stir. You can add more soy sauce to the mix. incorporate the pork and omelette stripes. Serve in a big plate.
You can use sausages or chicken instead of pork and if you feel wild, some shrimps and Enjoy!
