or whole baby spinach to make it even quicker
poached or fried eggs
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat cooking oil of choice (I used avocado oil) in a medium sized saucepan (with a lid) over medium heat. When hot, add in the chopped garlic. Cook until fragrant
Add in the chopped spinach and lemon zest, pop on the lid and leave for 2-3 minutes, until the spinach has wilted
Add in the cooked quinoa and stir to combine. Cook until just heated through and remove from the heat (I added in about a tablespoon of olive oil here to keep things from drying out)
Serve up, salt and pepper to taste, and add a perfectly poached or fried egg to the top. Enjoy
