Easy Quinoa Pad Thai

January 12, 2014
These days, quinoa is well known as a sub-in for other grains, like rice, or starchy elements, like noodles. Cooking for Keeps created a visually stunning recipe for pad thai that uses quinoa in place of noodles. You still get the traditional pad thai toppings and flavors, like crunchy peanut and mellow tamarind paste.
5 cups cooked quinoa
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup bean sprouts
1 cup shredded napa cabbage
2 large garlic cloves minced
1 bunch green onions, sliced thinly and divided
2 tablespoons tamarind paste
4 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon sriracha
1 egg
½ cup chopped peanuts
½ cup chopped cilantro
