Quinoa with scrambled egg

Hi all, it's day second .I was in a mood to re-create something experimental, so thought of making quinoa pronounced as “keen-wah”.Quinoa is considered as whole-grain but in real it is a seed.This can be cooked like rice.This provides all 9 esential amino acids and is gluten free and is cholesterol free.
Don’t forget to read another light-hearted Post by Sra on Quinoa.
I had mine in a small bowl with scrambled egg to accompany. Fried some onions and added some chopped vegetable available in my pantry and viola I was ready with my lunch in about half an hour.
So, here is how I prepared.
Quinoa Upma with scrambled egg bowl
Serves -3
1 cup of quinoa
Cook according to package direction. It will make double the quantity.
Or in a boiling salted water in a saucepan , add washed quinoa and cook at medium flame for 10-12 mints til the germ separates out.
Now to the tempering
1 tsp of mustard seeds
2 tbs of oil
Heat up a saucepan, add oil and temper it with mustard seeds.
Add in 1 medium size chopped onion.
Now add in the cooked vegetables of your choice or you may use any frozen vegetables (it takes less time to cook frozen vegetables like corn and green peas.)
Now to the seasoning
2 tsp of red pepper powder
2-3 green chilly
And salt as per taste
Add all the seasoning to the fried vegetables. Mix in well.
Add in cooked quinoa. Mix in well with the seasonings.
Serve with scrambled egg.

Happy Cooking and see you tomorrow

  10. Jaya, this is one of those daily posts that I missed. Just noticed it when I re-read my quinoa post now. You may not believe it but I was wondering how scrambled eggs would taste with quinoa and then decided they wouldn't be great (all without trying :) ). I must say your dish looks mighty good and I initially thought that pink stuff was bacon, not onion!

  11. Sra,
    Really scrambled egg was delicious with Quinoa...Bacon,never tasted though..I presume that may go well with quinoa ..thanks for reading this post :)...
    hugs and smiles
