Red Quinoa with Green Beans
1 cup red quinoa
2 cups vegetable or chicken broth
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 pound green beans, cut into 1 inch lengths
2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
2 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper to taste
- Place 1 cup red quinoa and 2 cups of vegetable or chicken broth in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer, cover and cook for 15 minutes. When done, the grain appears soft and the red becomes translucent.
- While the quinoa is cooking, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute the onion in the skillet with the olive oil for about 3 minutes or until onion is tender. Add the green beans to the skillet and cook for 5 to 10 minutes depending on your desired crunchiness. Add the garlic the last minute and saute together.
- Position the green bean mixture around the sides of the skillet making a well in the middle, add the beaten eggs to the middle of the skillet. Allow eggs to cook a bit before mixing all together.
- Once the egg is cooked add the cooked quinoa to the skillet and mix all together. If dry, you can add a drizzle of olive oil to add a bit of moisture to the final product. Finally, add some salt and pepper to taste or desired seasonings. Enjoy!
This is a great dish that can be served as a meal or a side dish. I love the slightly added crunch of the green beans. This dish is flavorful and the colors look so pretty together!
