Power grain scramble


Back in my home country, we eat rice, soup and fish for breakfast. But my husband who is from Kansas doesn’t quite understand that….so I have to come up with breakfast ideas all the time – not that I can heat up leftover fish from last night…

I usually get up 30 mins earlier than my husband, pack what we call, a ‘snack pack’-various veggies with hummus dip, fruits and nuts, and make him breakfast. Yes, I am a good wife. :)  thank god for his day-offs. His day off =  my morning off. Yippee. I can’t imagine how moms do it all – take care of family every morning,,,pack up lunches for kids and take them to schools. I can barely take care of the husband and dogs….My great salute to all the mothers. (This video makes me cry! Great solute to all the mothers )

This breakfast is super healthy and quick. I make a big batch of oats + quinoa mixture and keep it in the refrigerator then I am all good to go next morning. I wasn’t going to post this dish in my blog but my husband ‘INSISTED’! Yes, he loves the dish that much.
Feel free to make your own variations – use only quinoa, use red palm oil and tumeric powder, seaweed on top, fish sauce, peas and perhaps cubes of spam…..:)


1 cup old fashion oats
1/2 cup quinoa
2 egg whites
A few pieces turkey meat (optional)
salt + pepper + parmesan cheese


1. Cook oats and quinoa. I know their cooking times are different but oats can be overcooked so I just throw them together and cook till quinoa is done. (I keep the batch in the refrigerator, it will last up to a week. This is like ‘fried rice’ so ‘old’ oats-quinoa mixture actually better.  )


2. Heat some olive oil (coconut oil or red palm oil) in a pan, ‘stir fry’ oat-quinoa mixture till it gets somewhat spreadable.
3. Add egg whites and cook the mixture like scrambled eggs.
4. Salt and pepper. Sprinkle with some parmesan cheese.

That’s it!!! Didn’t I tell you it’s quick?
Have a great morning everyone!



My mom made breakfast for all of us and dad and pack our lunch every morning....gosh I don't know how she did it! Thanks mom!!! You still rock!

    Breakfast foods vary widely from place to place, but often include a carbohydrate such as grains or cereals, fruit and/or vegetables, a protein food such as eggs, meat or fish, and a beverage such as tea, coffee or fruit juice. Coffee, tea, juice, breakfast cereals, pancakes, sausages, bacon, sweet breads, fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, mushrooms, baked beans, muffins, crumpets and toast with butter or margarine and/or jam or marmalade are common examples of breakfast foods, though a large range of preparations and ingredients are associated with breakfast globally.-

    Bye for now

    Oats are grown in temperate regions. They have a lower summer heat requirement and greater tolerance of rain than other cereals, such as wheat, rye or barley, so are particularly important in areas with cool, wet summers, such as Northwest Europe; they are even being grown in Iceland to help prolong the growing season.’-,,
