10pm supper for one: Red quinoa "fried rice."

(In order of appearance in my pan...) shallots, asparagus, oyster mushrooms, artichoke hearts (frozen), white corn (frozen), pine nuts, prosciutto, a tiny bit of Parmesan cheese, and of course, red quinoa.

Quite possibly the most nutritious meal evarr, making up for the delicious cabeza and carnitas tacos I had for lunch today.  Quinoa is the only grain that contains complete protein, is high in fiber, full of antioxidants, and super delicious.

Thanks for the idea! I've got some quinoa I need to use up.
Yes I've decided quinoa doesn't really stand on its own... must be mixed into things or have things mixed into it =)
red quinoa seems a bit exotic for those of us who live in the sticks. You get an A+ for your cooking skills.
George, where exactly is "the sticks"? If you have a Whole Foods, you can get red quinoa! =)  Thanks for the compliment.
Northeast Connecticut is much different from the rich parts of the state. We have no Whole Foods. We do have Champlions General Store which is run by a pleasant woman who emphasizes herbal "medicines". Our town is named Storrs, the location of the University of Connecticut.
You are one of the healthiest eaters I know. Now I feel like a pig... where's that bag of potato chips?
