Quinoa is a nutrient-dense, gluten-free ancient grain, which is a good source of protein, fiber, iron, thiamin and vitamin B-6. The grain is currently featured for a limited time in Pei Wei’s new Korean Spicy with Quinoa. Fans can also pair quinoa with any of Pei Wei’s Wok Classic entrees for an additional 99 cents.
The Korean Spicy with Quinoa features carrots, edamame, freshly chopped red bell peppers, bean sprouts and scallions. The dish is wok-cooked with sesame oil and spicy sauce, inspired by the sweet-tangy-spicy flavors of traditional Korean bulgogi, then lightly tossed in soy sauce. It can be ordered with chicken, steak, shrimp or tofu. Korean Spicy with Quinoa starts at just under $8.
