Quinoa with Edamame, Parm, and Egg

Another Pinterest recipe! Oh god, it's an addiction. For once, this is a recipe that does not involve cream cheese. In fact, it really doesn't involve much of anything. It's just very basic and simple. You know I love everything fried egg-related, so I did enjoy this. I always make my eggs over hard because I don't like runny yolks at all, though I do understand why that is suggested. This is good but it is pretty bland and basic. I had it with some Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Browned-Butter, which mixed in with the quinoa and made it a little more flavorful. I doubt I would make this again.

Quinoa with Edamame, Parm, and Egg
These Peas Are Hollow, via Pinterest

1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup shelled, cooked edamame
1/2 ounce shaved parmigiano reggiano
1 extra-large egg
2 teaspoons olive oil, plus more for frying egg
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced

1. In a bowl, mix together the quinoa and edamame, and toss with one teaspoon of olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat a tablespoon or so of olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Fry the egg until whites are set, but yolk is still runny (this will make a nice little sauce for your quinoa). Season egg with salt and pepper.

2. Sprinkle the cheese over the quinoa and top with the hot fried egg. Serve with the sliced avocado, drizzled with a bit of olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper.

I was planning to try this. Now I'm not as pumped.
