Mediterranean Quinoa Fried Rice

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan bring broth to boiling; add quinoa. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat. Drain well; return quinoa to saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat to dry excess moisture from quinoa.
  2. In an extra-large wok or skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add quinoa; cook and stir 2 to 4 minutes or until quinoa starts to brown. Add eggplant, onion, garlic, and black pepper; cook and stir 3 minutes. Add tomatoes; cook about 2 minutes or until tomatoes start to burst. Remove from heat. Add spinach, olives, and oregano; toss to combine. Sprinkle with feta cheese and serve with lemon wedges.
