Dinner Eggs, Continued: Easy Vegetable Fried Quinoa (serves 3-5) Quinoa is a ‘fairly new product” to some of us, but is an ancient ‘grain’ cultivated near the Andes in South America. High in nutrients, good hot, warm or cold.


5 eggs, beaten

3 cups Quinoa (“Keen’-wa”) cooked per package directions (1 cup Quinoa and 1 cup water = 3 cups cooked Quinoa. I used “tri-color” Quinoa on TV, but regular (oatmeal colored) is just fine.

3 TBS butter, divided

1 1/2 cup frozen mixed vegetables

1 onion, coarsely chopped

Salt/pepper to taste

3 TBS Soy Sauce

2 TBS Sesame oil (or Olive or vegetable oil)


Cook the Quinoa as directed on package, set aside.

Heat 1 TBS butter in a large skillet over medium heat, add beaten eggs, stir vigorously until scrambled, but don’t dry them out. Remove to a plate.

In the same skillet, add 1 TBS butter over medium heat; add the frozen mixed veggies and the chopped onion, cook/stir occasionally, 5-10 minutes until onions are soft. Add salt/pepper to taste.

Almost done: Turn the heat on high in this same skillet containing the veggies, put in the last 1 TBS butter, and add the Quinoa and Soy sauce, stir until combined. Continue stirring for 3-5 minutes, until the mixture is “fried” but not browned.

Last: Add the scrambled eggs and the Sesame oil (or other oil) with the other ingredients. Stir to combine. Remove from heat, serve warm.

Personal aside: I have eaten this cold, very satisfying/filling. My husband liked at, and amazingly, my finicky little old Cocker Spaniel, who will hardly eat anything, gobbles it down!

A rather potent winter storm is still on track to move into the area late Sunday and last through most of the day on Monday. Initially precipitation may fall as rain or a wintry mix of rain, sleet, or freezing rain, but by late Monday morning all precipitation should switch over to snow. Even before the heavy snow starts area roads within the watch may be slick due to the potential for off and on freezing rain. There will also be a very tight gradient between the highest snowfall amounts across far northern Missouri and very little snow, more toward the Highway 36 corridor and areas south of there.
