Quinoa Egg Scramble Recipe

Protein-Rich Breakfast: Spinach Quinoa Scramble

If two scrambled eggs always leave you wanting more, bulk up your breakfast with two healthy ingredients: spinach and quinoa. This satisfying, vitamin-packed dish offers a whopping 19.6 grams of protein per serving. It's delicious enough to savor as a weekend treat, but it also takes less than 10 minutes to cook, making it an option for a hearty before-work breakfast.

Feel free to grate one teaspoon grated Parmesan on the dish as garnish.
