Roasted Tomatoes with Eggs and Quinoa

I made this Roasted Tomatoes with Eggs and Quinoa just for myself. Ken doesn’t like this type of breakfast food. He’s more of a pancakes and coffee cake fan. That’s not to say that I don’t like pancakes and coffee cake. I do. BUT, I cannot stuff my face with those every single day or I would be as huge as a house. Somehow Ken is not as huge as a house. I need to figure out his secret to not always eating healthy, not always exercising and not being as huge as a house.

This is a recipe for one but you can easily double, triple or quadruple it if you’re feeding more than just yourself. This recipe requires very little prep work. If you don’t have any leftover quinoa hanging out in your fridge, you can easily make some in a rice cooker. If you don’t have a rice cooker, GO TO THE STORE NOW and get one! It will make your life so much easier when it comes to cooking rice and quinoa. This gal doesn’t have time to watch a pot of rice or quinoa. I’m sure you don’t, either.

OH, another convenient perk to this recipe – you can make it and take it. I do it all the time. I throw all of the ingredients in a container and take it to work with me. Breakfast and coffee at the work desk. Word.

  1. Yum, I need a healthy breakfast like this in my life. Today I just had a gloopy cookie and some sourdough pretzel nibbles. Not the best thing in the world. I like to have something more substantial and with lots of protein and nutrients to keep me going. This definitely fits the bill!

    • Haha, sometimes I will stuff my face with cookies for breakfast. Then I think “what have I done”. It usually results in me making something healthy the next day!

      Thanks so much for stopping by, Amanda!
