Quinoa & Egg Breakfast Plate

Dee Stillwell


I found a vegetarian version of this yummy breakfast on the net at www.spabettie.com. After posting this recipe the blogger became vegan. I was put off by how her vegan followers were ripping on her for posting a forbidden egg recipe..I, for one, love eggs and believe them to be very good for you and so is quinoa. So if you are vegan, this is not the recipe for you. Vegetarians and us carnivors will love it for sure. This breakfast is low in fat & packed with protein and very good for you. Every time I make it, I stay full for at least 5 hrs, and for around 400 calories...that is awesome.

How to Make Quinoa & Egg Breakfast Plate

    Spread quinoa flat and fry on both sides till lightly browned. Turn heat to med/low.
  2. Make 2 wells in quinoa. Break an egg into each well. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Add 1 Tbl. cheese on top of each egg. Cover with lid and cook about 3 minutes, or to desired egg doneness.
  3. You can eat this as is or top with pico de gallo and a Tbl. of light sour cream (My preference) Enjoy!
