My poached egg bowl makes a warm and gently nutritious meal.
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 shallot, chopped
3 cups spinach, chopped
½ inch ginger
Cook quinoa according to package directions, enough to make four servings. Peel and finely chop garlic and shallot. Chop spinach. Shred carrots. Grate ginger.
½ tablespoon white vinegar
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons coconut oil
¼ teaspoon turmeric
Heat one inch of water along with vinegar in a shallow pan over high heat. When the water begins to simmer, lower heat to medium and gently crack eggs into water, add salt and pepper. Continue to simmer until whites are opaque.
Sauté shallot, garlic and spices in coconut oil; add quinoa and spinach. Continue cooking until spinach is just wilted; keep warm until ready to serve.
Divide quinoa and spinach mixture into bowls, serve with an egg.
