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!
