Quinoa, Tomato and Egg Bake
I didn’t have too much left in the fridge to make breakfast, but found some quinoa I bought ages ago.  It’s such a healthy, delicious grain and great for cold summer salads.  I decided to experiment and make a quick fry pan bake for breakfast, I’ll definitely be trying this again with a few new ingredients, but it came out great.
Ingredients:
1 cup water
1/2 cup quinoa
1 clove garlic, diced
1 tomato, sliced
2 eggs
A bit of cheese if you have it
Salt and pepper
Preheat the grill of the oven.  Bring the water to a boil in a frypan, and stir in the quinoa.  Cook until water is mostly absorbed, add the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and put under the grill to start cooking the tomatoes (about 5 minutes).  Pull the pan out and crack the eggs over the top, and add some cheese.  Return to the oven for about 5-7 minutes until the egg white is cooked but the yolk still isn’t set.  Serve in the pan.
Just a reminder to tweet me 3 ingredients that have been in your cupboard for ages that need cooking, I’ll pick one to create a recipe from this weekend!
