Scrambled Quinoa Omelette with Veggies

Scrambled Quinoa Omelet with VeggiesA scrambled quinoa omelette has all of the best ingredients – meaning whatever you want to put into it!  It can take any combo of ingredients or exactly what you have leftover in the fridge.

I have done scrambled quinoa omelettes with with spinach, kale, squash, mushrooms, chorizo, turkey, peppers, fennel, tomatoes, avocados – if you can think it, then make it!  The quinoa is a wonderful addition and gives a great texture to eggs – this is a mega-protein dish!

For my 15 year old that is over 6 feet tall, this is a great breakfast that gives him the get up and go in the morning, plus I can sneak some extra veggies in there too.  Yes, I am still doing that – you can never eat too many veggies, especially at 15!

Get creative and Nosh Away – Thank You, Quinoa Goddess for all the good protein!

Tickled to be adding this to Amee’s Savory Dish – Fit & Fabulous Fridays!

You can use any ingredients - here is one of my favorites!
Ingredients
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 TB butter
  • ½ cup milk (to your taste & whatever type you like)
  • ½ cup to 1 cup cheese (I like Gruyere or Cheddar)
  • 1 onion – chopped
  • 4 handfuls spinach – uncooked (or other veggies)
  • 6 Campari tomatoes - chopped
  • 1 – 2 TB cumin
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
Instructions
  1. Saute the onions in a large pan with one TB butter over medium heat.
  2. Add 1 TB cumin to the onions as they are cooking.
  3. Whisk eggs and milk together and add Salt & Pepper to taste.
  4. I add a second TB of cumin here.
  5. When onions are soft, pour egg mixture into the pan.
  6. Push the eggs around as they set up until they are firm enough to be pushed to one side of the pan but not fully cooked.
  7. Add second TB of butter to the empty side of the pan and add the spinach until wilted.
  8. Add the tomatoes and cook for approx 3 min.
  9. Add quinoa and the rest of the ingredients and toss until mixed fully and eggs are cooked.
  10. Garnish with tomatoes, avocados, chives (seen here) – whatever sounds yummy!
