Ingredients for 4 servings

4 cups quinoa, cooked (~1 cup uncooked quinoa)

1 egg, scrambled and sliced

1 egg, raw

¼ cup onion (red or yellow),,finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 cups kale, thinly chopped

1 green onion, sliced thin

¼ cup cilantro, chopped

1 Tbsp gluten-free tamari (or soy sauce)

1 tsp coconut oil

a handful of roasted cashews

Sea salt and pepper to taste



Steps In a large skillet over high heat, melt the coconut oil and sauté onions and garlic with a pinch of sea salt and pepper until the onions are slightly translucent. Add the cooked quinoa, tamari, another pinch of sea salt and fresh, ground pepper. Cook for a few minutes.


Add the raw kale and cook until the leaves turn bright green (~ 1 minute).


Add the roasted cashews and cook for another minute.


Add the raw egg, stir, and cook for another 3 minutes.


Allow the “fried quinoa” to sit in the pan for about 30-45 seconds before stirring again. (You don’t want to constantly mix it.)


Add the sliced, scrambled egg, cilantro, and green onions. Serve immediately with an extra garnish of green onions.
