Spinach & Mushroom Breakfast Quinoa

Spinach & Mushroom Breakfast Quinoa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #breakfast #quinoa #recipe

A hot, healthy, hearty, satisfying breakfast that comes together in minutes if you have pre-cooked quinoa in your fridge.

It was my friend Ann at Fountain Avenue Kitchen that introduced me to the concept of breakfast quinoa. It’s a marvelous thing … quinoa makes such a perfect base for a fried egg. Quinoa is such a versatile grain–it’s naturally gluten free, and high in fiber and protein, and I love the nutty taste and the chew factor it brings to a recipe.

Stir in a few veggies along with some cheese and you have an easy yet fabulous breakfast.

  • 1/2 cup (packed) fresh chopped spinach

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter or drizzle the olive oil over, then add the onions and garlic and saute until the onions are soft and translucent.
