BREAKFAST QUINOA WITH POACHED EGGS, CHILLI AND SPRING ONIONS

Updated: May 27

A really healthy breakfast or brunch option full of flavour and nutrition. And, super easy to make.


Serves 1


Ingredients:

70g quinoa

2 large organic eggs

2 spring onions, finely chopped

1 garlic clove , finely sliced

½ red chilli or a pinch of chilli flakes

1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted

1 tbsp chopped chives/parsley

Squeeze of lemon to taste

A drizzle olive oil

Sea salt and pepper


Method:

  • Wash and rinse the quinoa thoroughly (to remove the bitter taste).

  • Place in a pan, cover with the water and stock and bring to the boil. Turn down and simmer for 15 minutes (the grains will double in size).

  • Drain. Mix with the spring onions, garlic, chilli, sesame seeds, herbs and seasoning.

  • To make the perfect softly poached egg - break the egg into a small bowl and have a slotted spoon at the ready. Bring a pan of water to the boil and add 1tbsp white wine vinegar. When you are ready, using a fork, swirl the water to make a whirlpool then drop the egg into the water. Turn down the heat so that the water is gently simmering (otherwise the egg will break up!). Poach for exactly 2 minutes, remove with a slotted spoon and drain on some kitchen paper to remove any excess water.

  • To serve, spoon the quinoa into salad bowls, place the poached eggs on the top and sprinkle with a squeeze of lemon juice and little olive oil.
