- Wash the quinoa thoroughly with drinking water.
- For 1 cup of quinoa add 6 cups of salted water for boiling.
- Boil the quinoa for 15 mins till you see the sprouts. Switch off the flame and let it sit for 15 more mins.
- You can boil the quinoa in vegetable/chicken stock as well.

- In a pan add some oil saute the veggies (except capsicum) for 2 mins.
- Push the veggies to the other side of the pan and crack an egg (optional).
- After scrambling the egg, mix it with the veggies. Add some salt, pepper and chilli powder. Mix well.
- Add the boiled quinoa in the pan and mix it with the veggies and egg. Add the chopped capsicum at this point.
- At this point you can add some soy sauce to give it some extra flavour and colour.
