Breakfast Quinoa Scramble

Looking for a quick and tasty breakfast but tired of the same old scrambled eggs and bacon? Here is a great idea that you can make from virtually anything–leftovers work great!

This particular recipe uses bacon, eggs, sweet onion and green onion and sliced carrots. You can also add peas, broccoli, fresh tomatoes, zucchini, spinach, kale, parsley, cilantro or whatever other yummy veggies you’d like to add. The key ingredients are cooked quinoa, sweet or green onion, bacon and eggs.

When I make quinoa, I like to make a big batch, because the leftovers are great for breakfast. This recipe is quick and easy and absolutely delicious and satisfying–and very nutritious as well! This recipe serves two but is easily expandable to 4 or more. There are no hard and fast measurements here, just add more ingredients for a bigger crowd.


1 cup cooked quinoa

3 slices of (natural, nitrite free) bacon

1 or 2 organic, free range eggs

1/4 cup sweet onion, coarsely chopped

3 green onions, chopped

1-2 carrots, sliced

1/4 cup frozen peas

handful of cilantro or parsley,if desired

1 Tbsp of olive oil

Sea salt and hot pepper flakes (optional)


In a skillet, cook the bacon till done, but not too crisp. Set aside to cool, then cut or break into smaller pieces. Scramble egg in pan with leftover bacon grease and set aside with bacon.

Add vegetables, and stirfry in leftover bacon grease until slightly tender but not mushy. (5-6 minuutes)

Add olive oil to pan, and add cooked quinoa, and stir into veggies and heat through. Add chopped bacon and egg and mix in with quinoa-veggie mix. Add sea salt and hot pepper flakes and serve. Enjoy! You will have superpowered energy to burn all day!

Till next time,

Stay healthy and lean!
