Author Kara Miller - Kara in the Kitchen


  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 5 bacon slices
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups frozen pineapple chunks or canned or fresh
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Rinse quinoa and place in a medium pan along with the chicken stock. Bring to a boil. Turn heat to low, cover, and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. While the quinoa is cooking, cut the bacon into quarters and fry in wok until crisp. Remove from wok and pat off grease. Set aside.
  3. Drain the grease from the wok, but don't clean it. Scramble the eggs in the remaining bacon grease and season with salt and pepper. Add eggs to plate with bacon, setting aside for later.
  4. Add peas and pineapple to the hot wok, stirring until thawed.
  5. Fluff the quinoa with a fork, then add to wok. Add the bacon & eggs as well, tossing to combine with the peas and pineapple. Pour some of the soy sauce over the mixture a little bit at a time mixing as you go until your desired taste is reached.
  6. Enjoy!
