2. Broccoli & Cauliflower Egg-Fried Quinoa

No meat, no problem. This fried rice bowl has your protein needs covered. Only question is how are you going to season it - keep it simple with salt and pepper, get a little fancy with soy sauce and Sriracha, or go crazy and try it Italian or Mexican style. The choice is yours.
