Brown Rice & Quinoa with veggies and tofu


I got this box of Seeds of Change Organic brown rice and Quinoa from Costco. It comes in pack of 6 and each sachet serves 2. It tastes great when you cook it as per the instructions.
But my friend gave me this idea of trying out the Thai fried rice recipe with this brown rice instead of using jasmine rice or brown rice. She makes this amazing Thai fried rice and I got the recipe from get long back. I wanted to try it out but found out I wad out of Jasmine rice. So when I asked she gave me the idea trying out the recipe with the brown rice and Quinoa.  It came out deliciously well, Thanks Haritha for the awesome recipe!
It is very easy to make and makes a good quick and healthy lunch/dinner.
