I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Chicken Fried Brown Rice and Quinoa

Chicken fried rice turned up a notch.

1 cup brown rice
1/4 cup quinoa
3 cups water

2 eggs
1 tbsp butter
salt and pepper

1 cup chopped, cooked chicken

1/4 cup soya sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp sesame oil

Vegetable oil 
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 carrot, diced
1 stalk of celery, sliced
1/2 red pepper, diced
1 radish, diced

4 green onions, sliced
1/2 cup peanuts

Bring rice, quinoa and water to  boil, then simmer covered for 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork and chill.

Scramble 2 eggs in butter, add salt and pepper and set aside.
Mix the soya, oyster sauce and sesame oil together and also set aside.

Heat a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the garlic and white part of green onions. Cook on medium heat 1 minute. Add remaining vegetables, except green part of green onions, and cook 5 minutes or until tender crisp.  

Add chicken, rice and sauce and cook another 5 minutes. Toss in eggs and peanuts and heat through.

Serve with extra soya sauce and topped with more green onions.
