Make This Recipe


  • 1 Eggland’s Best Egg (Large), Poached
  • ¼ cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ¼ cup mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ cup carrot, grated
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup quinoa


Combine 1/2 cup quinoa with 1 cup water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.

Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat a skillet at medium to high heat. When the skillet is hot, add in the carrots and mushrooms with a splash of water, cook for 3-4 minutes until vegetables become tender.

In a small bowl mix together the spices and salt and pepper.

Reduce skillet heat to medium and add in the cherry tomatoes and spice mix, continue sautéing and adding splashes of water as needed so the vegetables do not stick/burn.

Bring another small pot of water to a simmer.

Crack egg into a ramekin or cup and gently create a whirlpool in the water.

Slowly tip egg into the water and let cook for 3 minutes.

Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel

While your poached egg is draining, assemble bowls – quinoa, vegetables, eggs.
