Total time
Serves: 2
  • 1 cup washed, uncooked quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onions
  • ½ cup uncooked spinach, packed
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce, plus more to taste
  • 2 eggs
  1. Bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add quinoa and stir to combine. Cover, reduce heat to medium and cook quinoa until most of the water has been absorbed, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat, and fluff quinoa. Divide quinoa evenly into two bowls.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet, over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté for 3 minute. Add the spinach and cook until wilted, about 3 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon soy sauce to the spinach and stir to combine. Cut the spinach into smaller pieces with kitchen scissors. Place spinach mixture on top of the quinoa.
  3. Do not clean out the skillet. Fry two eggs, over easy in the same skillet which was used to cook the spinach. Place the eggs on the spinach.
  4. Drizzle additional soy sauce on each egg, if desired. Serve hot
