To put this meal together quickly in the morning, cook the quinoa ahead of time. You can prepare a big batch of quinoa at the beginning of the week, and use it for a few days. It is also great for salads and main dishes. Enjoy!
Note: Other whole grains such as brown rice and barley can replace quinoa. Try the eggs any style (boiled, scrambled, or over-easy). You can also add sautéed baby kale, spinach, or fresh arugula and cherry tomatoes. For a vegan option, skip the eggs and use tempeh or cubed tofu.
