Original # of Servings: 1

  • salt – 1/8 teaspoon
  • black pepper – 1/4 teaspoon
  • quinoa – 2 tablespoons
  • avocado – 1/2
  • egg – 1
  • chives – 1/2 teaspoon

  1. Cook quinoa according to instructions on package.

  5. Remove eggs from heat and place in cold water.
  6. Allow eggs to be “cool to the touch” before removing from shell.
  7. Remove the egg shell by cracking the smallest portion of the egg and removing the rest of the shell, piece by piece.

  9. Use a fork to mash and combine ingredients together. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Serve on toasted wheat bread.
