Preparation
  1. Mix hot water, quinoa, and seasoning in Multipurpose Steamer. Cover; microwave on high until tender and water has absorbed, 12–15 min.
  2. Meanwhile, slice bell peppers. Cut broccoli florets into bite sized pieces. Whisk eggs in a small bowl.
  3. Heat oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers, broccoli, and edamame; stir-fry until tender-crisp, 3–4 min. Add quinoa; mix well. Continue to stir occasionally – this is to allow the quinoa to get crispy, about 2–3 min.
  4. Add eggs and scramble into quinoa.
Tips

Quinoa comes in a variety of colours: white, red, rainbow. White quinoa has the most neutral flavour, others are more nutty and earthy. Choose white quinoa for a faster cook time or be bold and try red or rainbow for a crunchier bite!
