  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed basil leaves
  • 1/2 medium ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
  • Balsamic glaze


  1. Place water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; add quinoa and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until tender, 12-15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Break egg into pan; reduce heat to low. Sprinkle with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cook until white is set and yolk begins to thicken, turning once if desired.
  3. Fluff quinoa with a fork; place in a serving bowl. Top with tomatoes, basil, avocado and cooked egg. Drizzle with balsamic glaze, or serve glaze on the side.
