Breakfast Quinoa Scramble
Looking for a quick and tasty breakfast but tired of the same old scrambled eggs and bacon? Here is a great idea that you can make from virtually anything–leftovers work great!
This particular recipe uses bacon, eggs, sweet onion and green onion and sliced carrots. You can also add peas, broccoli, fresh tomatoes, zucchini, spinach, kale, parsley, cilantro or whatever other yummy veggies you’d like to add. The key ingredients are cooked quinoa, sweet or green onion, bacon and eggs.
When I make quinoa, I like to make a big batch, because the leftovers are great for breakfast. This recipe is quick and easy and absolutely delicious and satisfying–and very nutritious as well! This recipe serves two but is easily expandable to 4 or more. There are no hard and fast measurements here, just add more ingredients for a bigger crowd.
