Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the quinoa

  • Rinse the quinoa.
In a small sauce pot, combine the quinoa and 1 cup [2 cups] lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm.
While the quinoa cooks, prepare the vegetables.

2

Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and white parts of the scallions and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Working in batches if needed, stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan.

3

Cook the eggs

In the same pan used for the vegetables, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons butter or oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Crack the eggs directly into the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the whites have set and the yolks are slightly runny, 2 to 3 minutes. If you prefer firmer yolks, cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a plate.
While the eggs cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.

4

Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the dish

  • Cut away the core from the tomato; coarsely chop the tomato.
  • Coarsely chop the dill.
  • Cut the lemon into wedges for garnish.
To the bowl with the vegetables, stir in the quinoa, tomato, and dill. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the quinoa and vegetables to individual bowls and top with the eggs. Garnish with the feta and green parts of the scallions and serve the lemon wedges on the side.
