Quinoa Energy Bowl

This recipe was born from not having many ingredients in my pantry, but sometimes that's the best way to come up with new and inventive recipes! I'm naming this one a quinoa energy bowl because it has everything you need to stay pumped throughout the day! Especially if you're the type that has a late lunch (this makes a great lunch meal as well!) 

Cooking time: 10-15 minutes

1/2 cup cooked quinoa
3/4 slivered almonds
1 lime
1 can chickpeas
1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
Cayenne pepper (to taste)
Salt (to taste)
1 tbsp roasted flaxseed
1 large brown egg

In a small pan, add olive oil and chickpeas. As they brown, add cayenne pepper and salt to taste. Once thoroughly cooked, add lime juice and set aside. In a separate pan, cook egg in 1tsp of olive oil and 1tsp of water (healthier version.) Do not flip, let cook through. In a bowl, add pre-cooked quinoa.
(I usually make a large batch of plain quinoa for the week, simmered in vegetable broth and water only, most boxes have directions on the back,) and sprinkle crushed almonds and roasted flaxseed (available at Trader Joes) over the bowl. To finish, add chickpeas then your egg. Enjoy. :)

I love coming up with random recipes when my pantry is getting empty
