In honor of eggs, and because I went on a business trip in the first half of this week and I've got the day off, I'm posting a lunch with an egg on top today. I made garlic-lemon quinoa with spinach and a fried egg.
The quinoa was languishing in my pantry, since F. nearly always defaults to basmati rice. The spinach had been bought last weekend in anticipation of making a lot of salad, but then I wasn't here to eat any salads. It needed to be used up. As far as eggs and garlic... if I didn't have eggs and garlic in my kitchen it would be because I didn't have a kitchen.
- Throw some quinoa in the rice cooker. Remember salt.
- Sautee some spinach in butter or olive oil with chopped garlic.
- Mix the spinach and cooked quinoa together, spoon some into a bowl, and squeeze a slice of lemon on top.
- Fry an egg in the spinach-garlic pan and put that on top of the whole thing.
