Heat a small frypan on high heat, add two tablespoons of olive oil and let the oil heat through for one minute. Add the cooked quinoa and stir continuously for three minutes or until the quinoa has turned golden and is crisp. Spoon the quinoa out of the fry pan and let drain on paper towel. Set aside.
