Southwest “Fried” Quinoa

14 Jan

I loved this high protein, vegetarian dinner!

  • 1/2 C cooked Quinoa
  • 1 small onion (or 1/2 large), chopped
  • 1/2 clove minced garlic
  • 1/3 C frozen corn
  • Mixed fresh or frozen chopped red pepper, broccoli, mushroom
  • 1 egg
  • Adobo seasoning, to taste
  • Cumin, to taste
  • shredded cheddar cheese, optional for topping
  • salsa, optional for topping

Add onion to pan sprayed with Pam. Cook until starting to soften and then add garlic. Saute about 1 minute until fragrant and add frozen veggies. Cover with lid and cook for about 3 minutes. Add quinoa and seasoning to taste, and cover. After about 4 minutes, make a space in the center of the pan, spray with Pam, and crack egg. Scramble with spoon or spatula. Scramble in center until about half-way cooked and then combine with the rest of the quinoa mixture. Remove from heat, sprinkle cheese, salsa, and pepper to taste.

Enjoy! I didn’t include a picture because I’m sure that would have actually discourage the making of this recipe 🙂 Let’s just say my talent does NOT lie in food photography!

Last night I made these brownies! I’d been planning on it for a while and finally got around to it. I got the idea to make a batch of brownies and then freeze them individually for later from this Gina post! I can’t wait to take one out, pop it in the microwave and have a delicious dessert whenever I want! I’ve been sharing the secret with anyone who will listen 🙂

What else… oh yes, snow day yesterday!!
