Quinoa & Spinach Omelette



So excited that I discovered another new way to eat quinoa!  This recipe provides lots of protein to get your day started or to re-energize post workout.  If you are a quinoa lover like me then try it out- you won't regret it!

Recipe makes 1 omelette.

Directions:


1. Cook quinoa and set aside.

2. Heat nonstick pan to medium-low.  Add butter and let melt.

3. In a small glass bowl, crack 3 eggs.  For a healthier omelette, use only egg whites.  Whisk eggs together.  Pour mixed eggwhites in pan, do not stir.  Let sit for 2 minutes, or until sides are cooked.  Slowly shake the pan to release the egg from the bottom.

4. Using a spoon or your hands, spread the quinoa over the flat egg whites, covering the entire bottom with a thin layer.  Add spinach to one half of the omelette.

5. Gently fold over one side of omelette using a plastic spatula. Let cook for 1 minute.  Flip omelette and cook for another minute.  Remove from heat and enjoy right away!
