Combine these four nutrient rich foods for a delicious protein-packed breakfast.
- 1 cup dry quinoa
- 2 cups water
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
EGG, SPINACH, QUINOA AND FETA POWER BREAKFAST
- 3 cups spinach
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup prepared quinoa (recipe above)
- 1/4 cup feta cheese
For the quinoa:
Add the dry quinoa and water to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the seasonings to the water. Cover and reduce heat to low.
Allow to cook for about 10 minutes or until there is no visible water and the quinoa sticks slightly to the bottom of the pan.
For the egg, spinach, quinoa and feta power breakfast:
Wilt spinach in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the prepared quinoa and heat for 3-5 minutes. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and set aside.
Cook the eggs to your preference (Megan prefers hers over medium). Top the quinoa and spinach mixture with the cooked eggs and a sprinkle of feta cheese. Enjoy!
The savory, tangy flavors of this dish would be great with a Bloody Mary or spiced-up tomato juice.
For wine, I recommend a slightly fruity and hearty rose like the Finca Rose’ from Wolffer Estate that is made from a blend of Argentinian grapes – primarily Malbec with Pinot Noir, Bonarda and Torrontes.
For an even sweeter taste, try Kelma’s Sangria or lemonade.
