Rosemary Quinoa, Eggs & Kale


by Marla Murphy February 05, 2015 7 Comments

Valentine’s day is right around the corner and my favorite way to say, “I would do anything for you”, is through cooking lol. Some of the advantages of cooking for your valentine:
  1. It is cost effective, even if you want to go all out with amazing steaks and a pricey bottle of wine it will still be cheaper to cook at home.
  2. You don’t have to deal with overly crowded restaurants, impossible to get reservations or poor service.
  3. You won’t be rushed out of a restaurant- don’t you hate when you have spent a lot of time and money to eat somewhere and the second the bill gets there you feel like the waiter is giving you side eye?! #Aintnobodygottimeforthat!! If you stay home and cook you can spend as much or as little time as you would like in the kitchen and dinner can linger on forever- no one to say it is closing time! (Unless you have kids and then maybe ship them off to the grandparents for the night?!)
  4. You can wear WHATEVER you want!! I know this might not be a positive for some but I love eating a ‘fancy’ homemade dinner in my pj’s something about it just feels so indulgent and rebellious! Am I alone in this thought process?!
  5. It is wayyyy healthier! You never know what they are cooking in the kitchens at some restaurants and while I like to think everything is kosher there is probably a lot of butters, oils and salts happening and a good rule of thumb is it is probably best to avoid a Mexican restaurant on V-day if you are planning on spending alone time afterwards…..just a thought.
  6. Did I mention wine is cheaper?!

Okay now that you have my reasons for staying in on Valentine's day I like to get the party started early and since V-day is on Saturday this year you should beat the crowds, real clothes & makeup and cook up an amazing brunch that your significant other will love and appreciate MUCH more than overpriced mimosas especially since it is healthier!! So on to today’s recipe!!

IMG_0169 I just love the taste of rosemary! But if you are not a rosemary fan feel free to switch it out with another herb like parsley, cilantro, etc!

Hey Gibson- I use the quinoa for the added fiber but also to complete the dish with a complex carbohydrate! Turmeric sounds awesome – I need to give it a try! Thanks for the idea and the comment!

Do you add the Quinoa just for a little extra fiber? Or does it just make it tastier?

For another alternative spice for eggs, I like to add turmeric. Little indian flare in the mornings!

Thanks for sharing.
